By The Staff

For the fifth year, Los Alamos will spotlight the community’s unique and creative heritage with the “Next Big Idea Festival: A Festival of Discovery, Invention and Innovation,” from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The free, family-friendly event is designed to inspire and educate through science, technology and arts.
Likewise, STEM Student Day on Friday, is designed to stimulate interest among young people about careers in science, technology, engineering and math with interactive programs.
On Friday, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Student Day will showcase three imaginative programs that students, grades seven through 11, will participate in including: “Show Me your Muscle,” “How Cell Phones Work,” and “R2D2 and His Band of Robotic Telescopes.” Students who participate will have a chance to win a Kindle Fire. A kid’s activity area at Saturday’s festival will feature hands-on science exhibits.
Immediately following the STEM event, entertainment will be provided by local teen bands. Sonji, Ryan Van Cleave, Matt Tapia, Nathan Lindsey, Michelangelo Lobato, Kile Uhlenbrock, and Cody Ulibarri will perform for Co-op Rocks, starting at 7 p.m. in downtown Los Alamos. “It’s all about the teens,” said Sandra West, Co-op outreach coordinator.
