Recent STEM Events

Hydraulic Arm STEM Challenge Workshop

Recently, we had our very first workshop at a new location–the National Cave and Karst Research Institute located at the Cascades here in Carlsbad, New Mexico. It is a fabulous space for us to host larger workshops! Our most recent one was a workshop involving the construction of a hydraulic arm and then learning how to operate it in order to compete in four challenges. This event had another “first”–it was the first event where we introduced our new concept called “Family Lab Partner”. Youth get signed up to participate with one other family member (who is 18 + years old) to work on the project as a team. It was a great success and it was so much fun to watch so many families working and learning together!

Chevron Family STEM Day

Chevron invited us to put together a STEM Day for their families. In January, we put together nine stations with activities such as dragster racing, geodes, mini lava lamps, making chocolate butter in a jar, and being enclosed inside a giant bubble! Thanks, Chevron, for allowing us to be a part of your family community!


Monthly STEM Activities at Carlsbad Prep Academy

Every month, we meet with the students at Carlsbad Prep Academy and work on fun STEM activities. We’ve done Coke Mentos geysers, elephant toothpaste, mini lava lamps, balloon cars, butter in a jar, crystals, and much more! We enjoy our time with such amazing little scientists!

Community Lab Partners

Kids need hands-on STEM education more than ever. Our mission is to provide that opportunity to as many kids as possible. We depend on donations for Inspired by Science to be successful! All donors are what we call our Community Lab Partners.
