The University of Arizona in partnership with Cox Communications, presents Connect2STEM 2017 – a free event that is focused on inspiring kids about science, technology, engineering, math – and medicine with over 100+ hands-on STEM activities where guests can touch synthetic cadavers, explore real space equipment, and network with STEM professionals.
Connect2STEM will feature five hands-on activity zones:
- Bioscience Zone: Touch, feel and discover the human body like never before. See the biomechanics of a life-sized synthetic cadaver that can talk, breathe, bleed and sweat.
- Nature Zone: Get down and dirty with UA master gardeners and splash around in the Wildcat Water Lab.
- Outer Space/Technology Zone: Calling all amateur astronomers! Learn about OSRIS-Rex, a mission to bring pieces of the asteroid “Bennu” back to earth.
- Cox Gig Zone: Enjoy gaming stations, coloring contests and giveaways. Learn about the science of GIGABLAST services getting to your home. Be on the lookout for a special appearance by Digeez, the COX mascot.
