Scientists in the Spotlight Every Second Saturday

Event Description

MARK YOUR CALENDARS for this special event! Every second Saturday from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, the museum features actual scientists and researchers talking to visitors about their favorite STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) topics.

Featured in December: Teri Roberts and Isaac Salazar

Stop by the Bradbury on Saturday, December 12, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to chat with Teri Roberts, a software quality engineering and development specialist. She can help you better understand how a computer “knows” what it’s doing.

During that same time you can visit with Isaac Salazar, a mechanical engineer, who will be there to talk about how experimental variables can be used to improve science. If that’s not enough, you can also make and fly a paper helicopter. (Yes, if you make one you can take it home with you to continue the fun and learning.)

Join us every second Saturday of the month for Scientist in the Spotlight, a program featuring scientists that have been certified for public outreach through the museum’s Scientist Ambassador Academy.  These scientists talk with museum visitors for a couple of hours about their favorite science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) subject. Conversations are intended for all ages and include interactive hands-on activities that make learning easy and fun.  To learn more, visit: http://www.lanl.gov/museum/participate/scientist-ambassadors.php

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 NEW exhibits. With lots of interactive elements, they're not only informative, but fun too!
