Building STEAM In Kannapolis

We’re Building STEAM In Kannapolis

Join us for a variety of fun family events on October 7, as we celebrate (STEAM) - Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.

The Building STEAM Festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Carolina Research Campus Horseshoe (401 Laureate Way, Kannapolis). The event is free and will include activities for children, teenagers, and parents – both indoors and outdoors on the campus.

Bring your lab coats and get your hands dirty with hands-on art and design, chemistry, life sciences, earth and space sciences and mathematics activities, experiments, and projects.

You will be able to join our partners:

Cabarrus’ Health Alliance

Come learn about nutrition with Cabarrus Health Alliance! We’ll talk about our Healthy Living initiatives using hands-on activities such as our sugar and salt shocker kits, portion plates, and many other engaging models.

NC State’s Plants for Human Health Institute

Complete a STEM activity with information about microgreens, how to grow them, their health benefits, and receive a take-home container of microgreens.

UNC Charlotte’s Department of Bioinformatics and Genomics

The Phyloinformatics Lab appreciates the invitation Lab LaBella to help you learn how the bioinformaticians department at UNC Charlotte reads DNA to discover new traits in organism. Come over, meet us in person, and be guided on a journey through building model bacteria!
