Join us for a STEM Expedition to the Port of Long Beach and Bowers Museum. The Port of Long Beach is a major seaport for international commerce, cargo operations, and innovative environmental initiatives. The girls will spend the morning on the waterfront seeing the day-to-day operations and speaking to women who keep our port running. To finish our day, we will head to the Bowers Museum! Located in Orange County, this museum includes 100,000 objects from the areas of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, Native American art, and the art of Asia, Africa, and Oceania. In addition to their main campus, the Bowers Museum also includes a children’s museum, Kidseum. During our time at the Kidseum we will be traveling through Future Park: Art + Technology. Our scientists will explore the digital and technological side of art by creating complicated courses projected on the floor that move and change when touched, by rolling soft, large (as tall as our scientists!) orbs of light that change color and sound when moved across an orchestral floor, and by using blocks on a table that code to become digital thoroughfares for all modes of transportation. Creativity abounds when our young scientists work and learn together in these interactive spaces!
