STEM Center Starts Safari Saturdays

The STEM Center at Tennessee Tech University, which is dedicated to the teaching of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, is inviting Cookeville area children in grades Pre-K through 3 and their families to attend STEM Safari Saturdays scheduled for this Saturday, October 23 and Saturday, November 6 from 9 am to noon. Organizers say the kids will experience hands-on, minds-on, engaging activities in basic science and mathematics. The session this week will focus on what's being called Spooky Geometry. Tell-Tale Wildlife is the name of the November event. Officials say STEM Safaris are flexible experiences, and families may come and go as their schedule allows. However, an adult family member must remain with children throughout the event. The workshops are free, but reservations are requested. If you plan to attend, call 372-6573
