What:

“We’re excited to celebrate National STEM Day here at the upside-down house. Science and education are at the heart of our attractions and exhibits, and so we’re looking forward to amplifying that experience for our guests,” says Brian Wayne, general manager of WonderWorks Orlando. “It was great seeing guests get a closer look at the science behind some of our most popular exhibits, like our Bed of Nails and our Titanic ice bucket.”

Upcoming events at WonderWorks Orlando include:

  • National STEM Day – On November 8, 2021, WonderWorks Orlando will be celebrating National STEM Day by offering science labs throughout the building. The labs will each explore different scientific concepts, such as the principles of press, temperature, density, origami, and more. The science labs will be located near exhibits that showcase the same scientific theories being demonstrated in the lab to offer guests a better understanding of the science at work. This is the second year of this celebration, with the labs being a special addition to the over 100 hands-on, interactive, science-based exhibits guests can explore all year.
  • FLOART: Central Florida Youth Art Gallery – In its second year, this youth art contest is accepting online applications now through December 15, 2021. At the conclusion of the application period, 10-15 local artists will be selected to have their artwork on display in the art gallery inside WonderWorks Orlando. Each winner will receive four admission tickets to WonderWorks Orlando to see their artwork on display. The theme this year is “Imagination.” Submission guidelines and contest information can be found online at: https://www.wonderworksonline.com/orlando/art-contest/.
  • Educational field trips: WonderWorks Orlando is gearing up for another successful field trip season with new exhibits and educational offerings to help bring students’ classroom curriculum to life.

More Details:

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, STEM occupations account for around 7% of all U.S. occupations. There are nearly 11 million adults working in these fields in the country. They fill such roles in our community as medical scientists, engineers, informational security analysts, and sociologists. National STEM Day is held each year on November 8 in an effort to get kids to explore these fields.

STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) activities and lessons get kids interested in and learning about these important topics. WonderWorks Orlando provides kids with STEM/STEAM learning opportunities that are not only educational but fun and interactive, too. WonderWorks Orlando is located at 9067 International Drive and is open 365 days per year, from 9 a.m. to midnight. It offers a variety of educational and student group opportunities, including the WonderWorks WonderKids program, the FLO-ART art contest, Homeschool Days, Sensory Days, hands-on labs and more.
