The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History, Scouts and families will explore STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) through experimentation and engaging, hands-on activities directed by local engineers, physicists and technicians from organizations such as Lockheed Martin/Sandia National Laboratories and the University of New Mexico.
Discover STEM Day, a family event, will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 7, 2015. It follows a week called Discover STEM Week, February 2-6, where schools will bring local students on field trips to the Museum to experience different engineering and science themes each day of the school week.
On Discover STEM Day, engineers and scientists from across the city will engage families and Scouts through hands-on activities designed to spark interest in the scientific fields of STEM. There will be activities that allow children to test their flying skills on flight simulators, experience the excitement of dancing electricity with Tesla Coils, enjoy ice cream made with liquid nitrogen, launch rockets, program bananas to play music and more. All activities will be fun and kid-friendly.
Participation in the interactive activities will be rewarded with a custom patch. The event is free with Museum admission.
Sponsors for the week’s events include Lockheed Martin/Sandia National Laboratories, Intel, Kirtland Federal Credit Union and NISE Network.
