Nat’l Guard Family STEM Night

On Friday, January 20th, the UALR STEM Education Center hosted the Arkansas National Guard Family STEM Night. Roughly 40 students and parents gathered on campus to explore various aspects of STEM set up in different classrooms in Engineering, Technology, & Applied Sciences building. STEM majors from the College of Engineering and Information Technology and UALR Teach students provided hands-on experiences with coding, snap circuits, and engineering structures. In addition, Dr. Tony Hall highlighted the evening with mesmerizing physics demonstrations and activities.  The event, supported by the Arkansas National Guard’s Child & Youth Program under the direction of Erica Wand and James Garrett, sought to engage students, elementary- to high school-aged and their parents in activities to promote awareness and interest in STEM as well as positive, team-building family interactions.
