The Leech Lake Tribal College STEM Department is hosting the fourth annual Across the Universe event April 4.
Across the Universe opens a window into the world of science, technology, engineering, math and its connection to Anishinaabe life. The entire community is invited to this showcase that will expose the wonderful power of science with hands-on activities and demonstrations from students, community members and scientists.
Although many of the activities are geared toward high school students, this free event is for the whole family to experience together.
Families and friends will enjoy a spectacular evening filled with scientific demonstrations and hands-on activities for all. Participants can enjoy demonstrations from the students of Bemidji State University to create slime that changes color with temperature.
Programs from the Headwaters Science Center will provide a close-up view of live raptors with an Ojibwe storyteller, while the Starlab will demonstrate constellations from the Ojibwe perspective. Rockets, virtual reality, and a feast will help round out the evening.
Across the Universe takes place from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at the Leech Lake Tribal College campus at 6945 Little Wolf Road NW. This event is free and open to the public. A pasta feast will be served at 5.
