Come join us to engage with all these projects and see what you can make!
American Society of Civil Engineers: Interactive Seismic Structural Experience where kids will be able to build their own toothpick structures and see how they behave under seismic loading on our simulated shake table.
Naval Air STEM: See how Naval Air STEM, part of Office of Naval Research creates an inclusive science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) culture that pioneers innovation and propels the Navy and Nation’s workforce forward.
Naval Surface Center, Phildadelphia: Naval Surface Warfare Center, Philadelphia Division: Explore technology demonstrations with STEM professionals responsible for shipboard machinery systems on US Navy ships.
Naval Submarine League and Submarine Force Library & Museum: visitors will engage in submarine-related hands-on activities using concepts of: buoyancy, density, force and motion, and propulsion.
The Climate Museum: The Climate Museum invites kids of all ages to speak up for planet Earth through hands-on activities, picture books, and climate science intro videos that get them thinking and talking about climate change. Kids will learn about climate impacts, add the living things they care most about protecting from climate change to a collective mural, and share their climate priorities to emphasize the importance of youth voices on climate.
