On Sat. March 9 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. kids from all over Los Angeles County are invited to learn, experiment and explore at the STAR Resource Station (10117 Jefferson Blvd, Culver City CA 90232) for a one-of-a-kind festival of the mind focused on the S.T.E.A.M. – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics - disciplines.
Elementary and middle school children (2nd-8th grade) will test their engineering abilities by designing the car of the future, discover the math behind wilderness survival skills, explore the technology behind artificial intelligence through Turing tests, and participate in dozes of hands-on workshops.
Students from the STAR LEGO© Robotics program will also compete in the Battle of the Brains, which is an opportunity for students to battle their Mindstorm sumo-bots that they have spent 12 weeks designing, building and programming using mechanical engineering, computer programming, special reasoning, teamwork, aesthetic and functional design and other S.T.E.A.M. based skills.
