The Saint Louis Science Center is excited to partner with Tau Beta Pi- a national Engineering Honors Society to provide STEM Engineering based programs for children grades 3-6. MindSET is a national initiative led by Tau Beta Pi to help K-12 students get interested in STEM careers by organizing a variety of programs that are both fun and educational. Using engineering concepts, attendees at MindSET sessions will learn about various types of unmanned spacecraft and the design processes that are used to build them. Participants will then have the opportunity to design, build and test their very own spacecraft! September 13 (10am – 12pm) October 4 (10am – 12pm) November 1 (10am – 12pm) Cost is $5 per person. Space is limited to 30 participants and reservations are required. To make a reservation or for more information, please call 314.289.4439.
