Arconic STEM Day!

Join us on campus April 5th!

Arconic STEM Day 

April 5th, 2024
12:15pm - 4:15pm 
At the UofL 

For four weeks of the school year, we came to you with Arduino projects and build challenges as part of Arconic STEM Club at your school. Now, it's your turn to visit us! Participants of the Arconic STEM Club during the 2023/2024 year are invited to join Destination Exploration in our space on the University of Lethbridge campus for a fun-filled afternoon of STEM on campus! Tour labs doing cutting edge research in NMR spectroscopy and genetic engineering, meet some campus professors, and spend some time in the DE space playing with robots and doing some chemistry. We can't wait to see you there!


12:15pm Drop-off & Hot Lunch
12:45pm Introductions!
1:00pm NMR & Synbridge Lab Tours
1:45pm Lab Activity / STEM Activity

Can my child attend this event if they didn't attend Arconic STEM Club?

Unfortunately this even is only for participants of the Arconic STEM club during the 2023-2024 school year. 


What's for lunch? 
  • Cheese & Pepperoni Pizza
  • Bag of Chips 
  • Veggies & Dip 
  • Pop & Water 


What activities are we doing in the Lab & Classroom? 

In the Lab: You'll join Dr. Susan Findlay for the Chem Show where you'll learn about how we can use different properties of reactions to create fantastic visuals and new products! 

In the Classroom: You'll join your Arconic Club Instructors and put all your new coding skills to the test but this time with Spheros! Use the different Sphero BOLT sensors to compete in a variety of challenges. 

Tentatively pizza- however, we are waiting to determine possible dietary requirements, and this may change depending on participant responses
