STEM Family Night Planning Workshop – http://ed.fnal.gov/sciadv

Are you planning a STEM Family Night? This session includes facilitator training for the Hands-on Science exhibit collection. After attending the HoS facilitator training (part of the STEM Family Night Planning Workshop), you qualify to borrow a set of five physical science hands-on activity exhibits that demonstrate the concepts of momentum and acceleration. Exhibits include a 4' x 6' gravity accelerator, two tabletop exhibits, the Linac Accelerator to explore waves and the "shape shooter" to explore the geometry of a hidden shape, a variety of ramps and curves, and the 2.5' x 5' gravity collider. Send a minimum of two representatives from your public library, PTA organization or school for facilitator training. Fermilab provides free delivery, pickup and loan of the Hands-on Science collection within 90-minutes driving time from Fermilab. Details and registration through Science Adventures.
