The Keweenaw Science and Engineering Festival (KSEF) is a four day event that brings learning and fun together for the whole family.
During Nerd Night, teenagers gathered at the Continental Fire Company in Houghton for hands-on activities hosted by Michigan Tech’s Physics Department.
MTU Laboratory Systems Associate Scott Rutterbush says that learning about science now will give these students a leg up in the future.
The KSEF Facebook page is sharing another Nerd Night video.
Kids have fun, also learn at Nerd Night
HOUGHTON – From static electricity to inertia, area fifth- through 12th-graders got to see scientific principles brought to life through demonstrations at Nerd Night Wednesday.
Nerds are the new cool kids in the U.P.
Laboratory Systems Associate in MTU’s Physics Department Scott Rutterbush said, “The more we can expose these kids to that, the more base level of understanding they’ll have and the more we, at places like Michigan Tech, can do with them when they come into our program. It’s making them better engineers, making them better scientists.”
