STEMville Science Spectacular

Explore STEM careers in new and exciting ways at the STEMville Science Spectacular!    

Designed for Grades 4 – 7

Whether you’re from the beach, the mountains, or anywhere in between, STEMville is the place for you. Join us at Morehead Planetarium & Science Center, on the campus of UNC Chapel Hill, for a spectacular afternoon. Participants will meet inspiring local scientists and UNC students, enjoy hands-on activities like bandaging wounds and building wings, and travel through the universe with a live planetarium show in the GSK Fulldome Theater. Event t-shirt, swag items, and meal included.  

This event has a target focus on underserved and underrepresented groups in STEM; however, all are welcome to attend.  

This event is part of the North Carolina Science Festival (NCSciFest), an annual statewide initiative of Morehead.

Local 5th grader works on a special project during STEMville 2022.
