Be a part of Morehead's Stemville Science Symposiumposted Thursday February 6, 2014
Morehead’s inaugural Stemville Science Symposium is a one-day science conference students in grades 4-7 that will be held on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus at Morehead Planetarium and Science Center. The conference will feature a light breakfast reception in the Rotunda, keynote address in the GSK Fulldome Theater and breakout science enrichment and learning sessions facilitated by undergraduate and graduate students from UNC-Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University. The morning will be filled with local high school volunteers assisting the conference participants. Examples of planned activities include programming robots, constructing solar cells, extracting DNA from strawberries, building catapults, making recycled artwork and more.
Stemville Science Symposium is designed to serve underrepresented groups in STEM education with a target focus on rural and urban communities of lower socioeconomic status, Latinos, women, and African-Americans, but all are welcome. This is a joint effort and collaboration with the Carolina Latina/o Collaborative (part of the UNC Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs) and NCSU College of Sciences- Office of Diversity and Student Services.
