Kids working on a science project.

Sick of watching Saturday morning cartoons?  Want to skip out on weekend errands and chores? Spend some time with your family learning insect anatomy, identifying twigs in winter, and having STEM-powered fun instead! The UNH STEM Discovery Lab hosts its fourth annual 4-H Science Bonanza on Saturday, December 11 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Though the event is geared primarily toward youth ages 5-13, adults and older kids are welcome to join the festivities.

Along with workshops, there will be food available, demonstrations from a variety of organizations from the area and a raffle at the end of the day.  Our youngest participants, 4-7 year olds will have their very own experience at the Bonanza for the morning.  So mark your calendars and plan on taking a break from the December holiday rush for some STEM-powered family fun.
