While vital to our national brain trust, subjects like science, technology, engineering and math have traditionally been taught in isolation, making them more intimidating than necessary. That’s where STEM comes in. The acronym refers to an initiative to highlight the intrigue and ecstasy of the hard sciences by offering hands-on learning and demonstrations of their worldly applications.
Hosted by Explora Science Center, the first annual ABQ STEM Fiesta will serve as a space for children to explore these subjects. At Tiguex Park (1800 Mountain Road NW) on Friday, May 13, 1-5 p.m., organizations like ABC Library, ABQ BioPark, Fractal Foundation, The Albuquerque Astronomical Society and New Mexico PBS highlight the ways in which numbers, data and formulas prove transcendent.
