About this event

An event for all ages from all schools to engage in STEM+ activities through hands-on exploration. Guest speakers, demonstrations of cool technology and the chance to play and learn all while having fun !

An event for all ages to engage in STEM+ activities through hands on exploration. Participants will have the chance to create and explore geographical terrains through augmented reality, immerse themselves in the “local neighborhood” within an interactive star field and explore the vastness of our own solar system by taking a scaled walking tour down the main hall. Other activities include simulating meteorite impacts on planetary bodies, modeling the effects of a black hole and designing their own galaxy. Engineering opportunities include designing paper coasters, Lego free builds, Lego challenges, Kinex rollercoasters and designing and launching paper rockets and paper airplanes! Creativity will be on display through the inclusion of the arts to create model galaxies, watercolor space scrapes and planetary lanterns. The NeXus Lab will be demonstrating 3D printing technology, offering short tutorials on how they work and why they are an important tech tool. Also, the laser cutter and CNC machine will be functional offering guest insight and opportunity to engage with the equipment. Included during the day there will be demonstrations and information provided by M4 Reactor Makerspace, Minds in Motion Children’s’ Museum, First Robotics Team, Lego League and Destination Imagination. Short presentations by students will be held in the media center showcasing their hard work and effort with a focus on increasing their STEM knowledge and skill set.
