From Zoo Atlanta:Zoo Atlanta joins fellow educators, schools, students and educational organizations statewide in celebrating Georgia’s seventh-annual STEM Day on Friday, May 3, 2019. The collaborative celebration, produced by TAG-Ed, engages STEM-based organizations and schools across the state to highlight the importance of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Visitors and school groups are encouraged to visit STEM-centric activity stations throughout the Zoo. At the Science Station, use microscopes to look at insects up-close, and play “fact or fiction” to test your insect knowledge. At the Technology Station, use FLIR thermal imaging technology at the gorilla habitats, and examine camera-trap images to better understand gorilla behaviors. At the Engineering Station, engineer design solutions focused on the future all-new African Savanna. At the Math Station, count and estimate wildlife populations using mark-recapture methods. Activities will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., while supplies last, and are free with general admission.
