Event Description

MARK YOUR CALENDARS for this special event! Every second Saturday from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, the museum has scientists on the floor talking to people about their favorite STEM topics.

Join us at the museum every second Saturday of the month for a program called Scientist in the Spotlight featuring Scientist Ambassadors that have recently been certified through the museum’s Scientist Ambassador Academy program. In this activity, ambassadors will hang out on the museum floor for a couple hours initiating casual conversations with visitors about their favorite science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) subject. 

These conversations are intended for all ages, so bring your kids and stop by the museum for a chat. While you're here, be sure to check out our BRAND NEW environmental exhibit. With lots of interactive elements, it's not only informative, but fun too!

On Saturday, June 13 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, Teri Roberts, a software quality engineering and development specialist and Mandie Gehring, a physicist, both at Los Alamos National Laboratory will talk to people about how computers, software, and nuclear fission work.
