Back by popular demand, science week is back! The team at WonderWorks is thrilled to present its 3rd annual Science Week. Beginning February 19th and running through the 23rd, an assortment of STEM educational activities will take place inside Destiny’s amusement park for the mind. Each day will be a different science topic filled with interactive learning.
“Science week offers so much diversity in STEM learning. We are so happy to have some amazing vendors from last year back and some exciting new additions,” said Nicole Montgomery, Director of Operations at WonderWorks Destiny. “We hope that those who experience Science Week are offered a new interest, or continue to study their STEM activity even after they leave.”
The schedule for WonderWorks Science Week 2018 is:
Monday February 19th – Mind Challenge Day – Get ready to solve puzzles, work with robots, and enhance your mind! Guests will learn about everything from depth perception and how mathematic thinking challenges the mind, to the brain’s ability to adjust to changing environments. Teamwork will help groups to develop solutions to interesting algorithms with a focus on the Rubik’s Cube. Presentations at 11:00am & 1:00pm
Tuesday February 20th – Drone Day – Drones are all the rage, but what is it like to actually fly one? Guests will get up close and personal with drones to learn how they work and what they are used for. They will also get to fly a drone using an advanced drone simulator.
