STEMAZing Saturday

(También disponible en español aquí.)

STEMAZing Saturday is a free event for PreK-12th grade students held the last Saturday of the month. Simply gather the materials listed for this month’s STEM explorations and join us on Zoom with other students from around the country and sometimes beyond. STEMAZing Saturday will start at 10:30 am Arizona time and end at 12:00 pm Arizona time. (Teachers are also welcome to join us!)

(Please note Arizona does not observe Daylight Savings so we are always GMT -7 hours. This means our start time will change when those of you who do observe Daylight Savings jump this way and that an hour. Arizona is currently is always on Mountain Standard Time. This is currently aligned with Pacific Daylight Time until the rest of you return to standard time. You can verify the start time for your location using:

Monkey Madness STEM

Materials to gather before joining us via Zoom (per participant unless otherwise noted with a * meaning it can be shared):

  • Jagged edge rock (any rock that isn’t round)
  • Scissors*
  • Drinking Straw (at least one per person)
  • Craft Stick (popsicle stick size – one per person)
  • Assorted Rubber Bands (4-5 per person, must be able to fit through the straw when cut open so it is no longer a loop)
