Lockheed Martin K-Max Helicopter to Visit STSSF

Hello, super science students! This is just a reminder to please be sure to register your project before the March 3rd deadline (late registration will be open until Sunday, March 9). We are excited to announce that participants in the 2014 STSSF will have the opportunity to attend a special afternoon workshop called “Soaring with STEM”. The workshop will include information about engineering principles associated with flight, and will conclude with the landing of a Lockheed Martin K-Max helicopter at SUNY Broome (weather permitting)!

So please be sure to complete your online registration and we look forward to seeing you at the fair.

This is so cool!

basset_hound_cooling_off-1We are excited to see you at the 2014 STSSF! This year, students will have the chance to try out some very cool science. Through a local partnership promoting NOVA’s Making Stuff series, workshop sessions led by SUNY Broome faculty members will focus on materials science concepts centered around the theme of “Colder”.  The workshops will focus on the question, “How do scientists develop new and effective ways to keep us cool?”  Participants will explore how to build and test various simple cooling units.  Hand-powered fans and electronic personal cooling units will be constructed and participants will be able to modify their designs to maximize the effectiveness of cooling. So finish up your projects and get registered.  It is going to be a fun day at the science fair!!

Celebrate Science at the 2014 STSSF!
