LANL Foundation to host open house

-A A +A

An open house from 4-6 p.m. Thursday at the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation’s Science Resource Center in Chimayo will give community members an opportunity to see how inquiry science works in the classroom.
Demonstrations will feature a sound kit, teaching vibration and pitch; a magnetism and electricity kit exploring circuits and electromagnetism; and a lesson on levers and pulleys.
Science Literacy Coaches, who work in 34 schools, will be on hand to answer questions. Inquiry science, supported by the LANL Foundation, encourages students to conceptualize a question and respond with an explanation. The program reaches 12,500 students in Northern New Mexico, expanding knowledge in science, math and language.
Funding comes from the foundation and Los Alamos National Security, LLC.
The Science Resource Center is at Manzana Center on County Road 103, 7.8 miles east of the N.M. 76 turnoff in Española. For more complete directions see lanlfoundation.org.
