Aspen Science Center Spring Newsletter

Spring has arrived in the Roaring Fork Valley and we are busy planning for a year filled with STEM programs and events for youth and adults alike! We recently completed our winter Physics Cafe series, in conjunction with Aspen Center for Physics. This year saw an especially good lineup of speakers, thanks to the work of Patty Fox at ACP. We had high attendance for all of the events, and it was great to see so many of you there.

We have hired our largest Intern-Educator class yet, and they are currently in training and helping to develop new programs for ASC to deliver this summer (see below). Our popular Science Sundays will be back later this month, in both Aspen and Basalt this year. At the end of June our summer programs kick off with a Physics for Kids BBQ in Basalt, before the series moves back to the Aspen Center for Physics campus July 11th. New this year, ASC has created Rocket Camp! for middle-school students, and we’ll be at the Aspen Farmers Market in June in July with hands-on STEM activities for kids. For adults and teens the Science of Music is back this summer with three sessions, presented in partnership with Aspen Music Festival and School. We’ll also have monthly New Moon Stargazing and Science of Cooking. And of course, our big summer event, the Summer Science Fair, will take place again on August 5th!

You can find all of these events on our website calendar. You can also download our Program Brochure and 2018 Schedule of Events. We have other events that are added frequently, so check our website calendar for updates. If you like what we do, like us on Facebook, and give us a 5 star review!

Summer is the time of year when we present most of our programs and bear the corresponding costs. We strive to provide our programming at accessible prices, and your support is critical to us doing so. If you like our mission and our programming, please consider a donation today. Donations of all sizes are very much appreciated!

We look forward to seeing you at our programs soon!
