Sheldon, Iowa – Hands-on learning and fun activities are in store once again for northwest Iowa elementary and middle school students.
Registration is now open for area fourth through eighth graders to attend Fall STEM Fest 2016 hosted by Northwest Iowa Community College in Sheldon and Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach 4-H and Youth Programs.
Extension Youth Program Specialist Ben Pullen says that fall STEM Fest 2016 is free to attend, and will be held Saturday, Nov. 12 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at NCC in Sheldon.
Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. in Building A on the NCC campus, with sessions starting at 9:00 a.m. Lunch and snacks are provided throughout the day, and a public showcase will be held at 2:30 p.m.
Pullen highlights some of the activities.
He says other topics will include Rockets to the Rescue; Cooking with Chemistry; Exercise Science; Welding Technology; Dairy Science; Electricity and Magnetism; Building Bridges; and Pottery Puzzles.
If your child or children are interested, Pullen says they’ll need to select their first, second and third choice color track which consists of different sessions and activities. Organizers will attempt to honor color track choices, but sessions fill up quickly. No changes to color tracks will happen the day of the event.
