Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center for this year’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Heritage Series program, “We Share STEM! Connecting Across Cultures” Family Day on Saturday, August 6, 2016 from 10 AM-3 PM.
This heritage series family day will highlight the contributions of the many scientists and engineers in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) professions across cultures. Activities and guest presenters, such as you, will be located throughout the Museum exhibit floor and galleries. Visitors can talk to STEM professionals in various fields, participate in an array of hands-on activities with R/C model rocketry and airplane groups, local high school robotics teams, glider simulators and participate in the Sally Ride: Who wants to be an Astronautperformance and game. Featured speakers for the day include members of the NASA Space Shuttle Discovery engineering team and Latino professionals participating in the iDescubra! Meet the Science Expert Series, in collaboration with the Smithsonian Latino Center. There will also be story time with an aviator or astronaut dress up corner and arts and craft activities for our youngest visitors.
The family day programs are informal and serve about 10,000-15,000 students and families each program. We hope you will aide us in highlighting some of the past and present phenomenal achievements and share your expertise and STEM knowledge to make this a successful, fun and educational program.
