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 every second Saturday of the month for Scientist in the Spotlight, a program featuring scientists that have been trained and certified for public outreach through the museum’s Scientist Ambassador Academy. These scientists set up shop on the museum floor for a couple of hours initiating casual conversations with visitors 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.

On Saturday, May 9 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, Steven Hayden, a chemist at the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies at Los Alamos National Laboratory will be at the museum talking to people about the incredible properties of nanoscale gold.
