The ASC STEAM Room (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) is opening at the old Crystal Palace in mid-February. The center will be open a few weekdays after school and on the weekends for youth and families to come in and explore different aspects of STEAM.
Activities and experiments in areas such as geometric building toys, car and boat building, art, gravity, Legos, simple machines, robotics, optics, biology, circuitry and many more will be available for all ages to explore. Above all, we need people who want to engage the public with fun science and who believe in our mission of making the many aspects of science understandable, interesting and accessible within our community.
Who would make a good volunteer? Anyone with a few hours of free time and enthusiasm for STEAM! Volunteers do not need a science background, but should have an interest in learning (we will train you!) and conveying knowledge to STEAM ROOM visitors, from preschoolers to adults. Seniors, young professionals, college and high school students, and parents can all help! Pair up with a friend or meet new science enthusiasts while helping the Aspen Science Center. We are building a list of volunteers for events throughout the year, so even if this winter doesn’t work for you, let us know if you are interested in helping out!
The Aspen Science Center is grateful to Mark Hunt for making the Crystal Palace available to us free of charge for the winter season. We look forward to seeing you there soon!
