Bradbury Science Museum Brings Summer Science On Wheels To Espanola Public Schools July 23-24

The Bradbury Science Museum at Los Alamos National Laboratory is taking its Summer Science on Wheels program to several Espanola Public Schools to help students keep up with science education learning and inspire the youth toward future STEM careers. The federally funded program run by the Espanola School District benefits some 250 students from 6 schools in the area.

Mel Strong, an educator with the museum, will engage students using a fun and creative hands-on activity on sound.

Students will build a device that demonstrates sound waves and use tuning forks to listen to vibrations and understand how sound is created.

The classes are 12:30-2 p.m., July 23 at James H. Rodriguez Elementary School and 9-11 a.m., July 24 at Tony E. Quintana Elementary.

Schools participating in the program during the week of July 22: Chinmayo Elementary, James H. Rodriguez Elementary School, Tony E. Quintana Elementary, Eutimio “Tim” Salazar Elementary, Hernandez Elementary and San Juan Elementary.
