Second Science Saturdays

 

Second Science Saturdays are back!

The Steelworks Museum hosts Kids’ Second Science Science program January through May from 1 – 3 p.m. for students in grades 1-6 and their parents. Cost is $5/participant.

From the beginnings of the 20th century to modern day, steelmaking relies heavily on electricity from powering overhead cranes and other large equipment, fueling furnaces, operating computers and other tasks. This hands on workshop will introduce participants to the basics of what electrical circuits are all about! Students will create mini power stations complete with power sources, switches and terminals, learn the differences between static electricity and current electricity, and why a closed circuit is necessary for power.

Begun in the Summer of 2014, with funding from the City of Pueblo, the Southern Colorado Community Foundation, and Pueblo Day Nursery Foundation, Second Science Saturdays incorporate a variety of hands-on experiments into an informal science learning experience for students and parents alike.

Second Science Saturdays focus on family learning with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) themes. Most kids who participate are in grades 1-6.  Families who join in are admitted to the museum for free following the workshop.

The Colorado Fuel and Iron Company was important to the Western United States Industrial Revolution. For this reason we are large supporters of STEAM fields and Free Science Saturday is one way we get to pass on the passion of CF&I to the children of Pueblo. We are happy to see them become interested in STEAM through the activities we share. We are thankful that our donors support our mission in STEAM education.

Space is limited at this event so please contact us to RESERVE YOUR SPOT: call (719) 564-9086 x108 or contact us here on our website.

Second Science Saturdays are a learning experience for both kids and parents!
