This program is one of the Boonshoft’s quarterly free admission days featuring science programs and activities. The occasion makes STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medical), interesting and fun for all ages!
Each-year, on the last of our quarterly FREE-admission Super Science Saturdays, the Boonshoft Museum collaborates with the Dayton Science Festival for a community-wide celebration of STEMM learning. Area families are invited to explore hands-on activities located throughout the Museum and interact with partners and Museum professionals for a unique experience of science and fun.
The subjects of science, technology, engineering, math and medicine are collectively known as STEMM, joined together in an effort to encourage students to become more proficient in the sciences. The STEMM Expo (closes at 3:00 p.m.) in the main exhibit hall will feature Museum educators and representatives from over 20 community partners.
The Astronomy, Collections, Education, and Discovery Zoo/Live Animals Departments of the Museum present an awesome day of science fun with a focus on educational talks, science theater presentations, experiments, and youth-oriented programming.
“Science inspires people of all ages and backgrounds,” said Boonshoft Museum Vice President of Education, Dawn Kirchner. “The Dayton Science Festival offers an opportunity for many who may otherwise be hard-pressed to visit to also enjoy the wonder and excitement of discovery.”
