STEM Safari Set For Saturday

The Oakley STEM Center at Tennessee Tech University invites children in grades PreK-3 and their families to attend a STEM Safari Saturday scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 26, from 9 a.m. to noon. Young learners will experience hands-on, minds-on, engaging activities in basic science and mathematics. This Saturday’s theme is “Feather Frenzy.” Questions to be answered include: what does a bird use its feathers for? Do feathers absorb water? And what does a feather look like close up?  Organizers say STEM Safaris are flexible experiences; families may come and go as their schedule allows. However, an adult family member must remain with children throughout the event. These workshops are free. For more information visit tntech.edu/stem.
