STEM Exploration Day

STEM Exploration Day

Sat, 04/16/2016 - 10:00am - 2:00pm

Join WXXI for a family fun event that celebrates the great outdoors by bringing it inside!

WXXI is hosting a STEM Exploration Event on Saturday, April 16th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at WXXI's Studios (280 State Street, Rochester). This event is part of a PBS KIDS initiative called “Explore the Outdoors” to encourage families and kids to get outdoors, learn, and explore nature. To help bring the natural world indoors, WXXI will be reaching out to partners to provide hands-on learning experiences around themes such as: environment, health, nature, animals, going green, conservation, recycling, gardening, and STEM.

The event will highlight resources from PBS KIDS programs – Wild Kratts, Nature Cat, and Ready Jet Go! The STEM Exploration Event is free and open to the public and targets families with children ages 2-8 years old. 

PLEASE NOTE: There will be some traffic detours downtown due to the American Heart Association's Heart Walk & Run at Frontier Field. The run will close State Street, part of the inner loop and a few blocks near the station during the race (until roughly 10:30). BUT YOU WILL STILL BE ABLE TO GET TO OUR EVENT.

Parking signs will be posted and police officers will help the public to find the way to the High Falls Parking Garage. You will be able to go down Platt St. or Brown St. into High Falls and to the parking garage. The streets will be reopening as fast as possible. Come in from the North if possible for best access early.

This event is part of a PBS KIDS grant-funded initiative called "Explore the Outdoors" to encourage families and kids to get excited about learning and discovering nature's surprises. The PBS KIDS logo is a registered mark of PBS and is used with permission.
