PoP: Meet a Scientist

Next event:

Sunday, December 10 Drop in anytime, 1-4pm

Erik Spoerke – Sandia National Labs
“Explore the composite nature of bones.”

Visitors of all ages are invited to meet scientists and engineers who are neighbors in the community. In Explora’s Portal to the Public (PoP) Meet a Scientist programs, visitors participate in materials-rich, engaging activities as they learn about the current research of Albuquerque-area scientists and engineers.

Past activities, with scientists from Intel, Sandia National Labs, University of New Mexico, and Qynergy Corporation, have included experiments with lasers and optics, investigations on how steam can generate electricity, explorations on how tools can help us ‘see’ infrared and ultraviolet light, and challenges with brain teasers, just to name a few.

PoP: Meet a Scientist programs are included with regular admission, and free for Explora members.
