DISCOVER STEM WEEK 2014
DISCOVER STEM WEEK 2014
The Museum is excited to bring you “Discover STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Week,” a week-long celebration of all things Engineering.” Discover STEM Week welcomes APS teachers and students, as well as families, to participate in a celebration of engineering where students will interact with scientists and engineers.
Discover STEM Week is a great way to add engineering exploration to daily school programming. With STEM education becoming a very important part of student achievement, and a part of the Next Generation Science Standards, this is an exciting opportunity for students to explore engineering problem solving as well as opportunities for future careers.
Each day, students will be given the opportunity to explore a different field of engineering:
Monday, February 3 - Aeronautical Engineering
Tuesday, February 4 - Chemical & Biomedical Engineering
Wednesday, February 5 - Electrical Engineering & Green Energy
Thursday, February 6 - Mechanical Engineering and Design
Friday, February 7 - Civil & Structural Engineering
Saturday, February 8 - Discover Stem Day Family Event!
Engineers from local businesses such as Sandia National Laboratories, Intel, Univeristy of New Mexico, Kirtland Air Force Base, and others, will work with visiting students to expand their understanding of the world of engineering with engaging workshops and hands-on learning stations.
Discover STEM Week will take place February 3 through February 8, 2014, nearly coinciding with National Engineering Month in March. On Discover STEM Day, Saturday, February 8, families are invited along with Scouts to engage in fun engineering activities. Visitors will be able to discover sand that is scared of water, fly remote-control airplanes in Heritage Park, experience delicious ice cream made with liquid nitrogen, and much more! Participation is free with Museum admission!
