UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

Propose an activity for UNCG’s 2018 Science Everywhere Day by January 8

Come join the fun. Create a hands-on activity for families to enjoy.

Stretch the definition of STEM (Science, technology, engineering and mathematics) to the limits. We all use “science” everyday. Nearly every discipline can relate: create a nature collage, dance with students, identify different musical tones, create origami creatures, touch a fossil, make flavored water, or tell nature stories.

The upcoming UNCG Science Everywhere Day will be held on April 21, 2018, noon to 4 p.m. Science Everywhere is an annual event that attracts thousands of community members.

At the past year’s festival, university staff, students, and faculty from across campus volunteered their time and energy to present over 75 hands-on science activities to the community. Many facets of STEM at UNCG were showcased for the community. Science was everywhere. With 75 activities on campus, there was something for everyone
