STEM on Sidewalks

STEM For All students are bringing Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) out into the open. Enjoy the outdoors and inhale a bit of STEAM.   Our students and their families have installed many exhibits and displays at the sidewalks of Chippewa Middle School and at Nancy Moore Park, both in Okemos, MI. (More locations to follow).

Most of these exhibits were built by Future Scientists of STEM For All, who are currently school students of Greater Lansing area. These exhibits cover a wide variety of STEAMing hot topics, including Mission to Mars, Launch America, discovering some of Galileo’s and Newton’s laws on your own, scale model of the solar system, several space missions including those to asteroids, optics, electricity and magnetism, rockets, airplanes, splitting atoms (safely), and many more.

All these exhibits are unattended, open all days and all nights, and are interactive. Wondering how these exhibits can be interactive when they are unattended? That is why we want you to bring your own mobile device that can connect to the internet. All the exhibits have one or more QRiosity Codes, generally known as QR Codes. Scan these QRiosity Codes using your device’s camera and you will be taken to a video where a Future Scientist explains that exhibit and gives you a lot more inspiring information. Please make sure your device can scan QR Codes. You may have to install an App for scanning QR Codes ahead of time. Even though these exhibits are placed in open areas and spaced apart, we suggest that you step away from the exhibit when watching the video explanation. Always follow the prevailing COVID-19 health guidelines.

We hope to add more and more exhibits and grow from simple to sophisticated exhibits.
