Fun for all ages!

Mechanical Engineering
Isaac Salazar, a mechanical engineer at the Lab, will be here 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.) 

Measuring with metric

Even though the United States signed the Treaty of the Meter in 1875, we continue to use two sets of measurement units side by side, leading to wasted time and medical errors—among other issues. Stop by and learn from Linda Anderman about the advantages of the metric system. There are scales both old and new to play with and an opportunity to consider if our current path really "measures up."

While here, pick up your free, metric-only ruler.

Scientist in the SpotlightJoin 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 will be in the Museum to talk with 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. Learn more about the Scientist Ambassador academy.
