The concept behind the Fernbank Museum's Science at Hand Day which takes place Saturday, November 9 is to put students in touch with the professionals involved in a variety of scientific careers and let them walk in their shoes.
Students will get to chat it up with biologists, astronomers, scientists, chemists and community volunteers involved in the field. Then they can their hands dirty trying out experiments, building brains out of dough and figuring out how to make an earthquake proof building.
Below is a full list of the schedule of activities. As we are trying to get students more excited and interested in S.T.E.M. Careers, here is a relevant, creative way to do it.
