#STEM #texas #central #engineering

On Science Thursdays, students from around Texas drop in and explore the Bullock Museum, see demonstrations, and participate in hands-on activities with STEM experts from Central Texas Discover Engineering.

On May 2, 2024, IEEE Central Texas Section will provide the experts.  The CTS STEM Committee is putting together hands-on demonstrations of electrical phenomena for the students  -- Jacob's Ladder, hand-cranked electrical power generation, Van de Graaff Generator, etc.

Within IEEE this event is hosted by the Central Texas Section Life Member Affinity Group.  This is a very enjoyable way for retired engineers to show curious youngsters interesting science.  Register to volunteer.  John Purvis,, is the coordinator.
