What is this event?
Science2day42morrow is like a science fair where adults (professionals from leading companies and organizations!) hold booths and kids are able to explore and be inspired! This year, the scientists will all be working in fields related to “Nature's Fury,” natural disaster preparedness, relief, and recovery and FLL teams or other interested students will be able to try hands on activities, read posters, and listen to talks for an exciting, state-of-the-art introduction to this topic.
For those unfamiliar with FLL (First Lego League), it is a subset of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), an organization partnered with Girl Scouts and others to promote science through hands on projects and teamwork. Each FLL season includes a new robot challenge and a science research project for students in fourth through eighth grades. This Science2day42morrow event is designed to give students a solid introduction to the 2013 research topic (Nature's Fury) before the season officially begins in September. Students will have a chance to meet working scientists and learn about real world needs that might inspire them to develop their own unique ideas as part of their FLL projects or in considering future careers.
Also, the NASA Ames Visitor Center will be open from 12pm - 4pm. This is an excellent learning place for both students and adults to visit! Come visit it either before or after your shift! You will have the opportunity to learn what scientists are doing at the amazing facility and watch staff- led presentations.
