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 and is connecting with local community groups by invite only.

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.
