S.T.E.A.M. Machines at the Santa Monica Pier

Posted By Karen Rigberg, Yesterday

 

Heal the Bay and Time Warner Cable are presenting the second annual S.T.E.A.M. Machines, a day-long festival of interactive science, technology, engineering and math activities using art as the medium and fun as the common denominator from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. November 15, 2014. 

“Heal the Bay's Santa Monica Pier Aquarium is hosting this STEAM event because we value science education as a way to cultivate better environmental stewards.,” explained Aquarium Director Heather Doyle. 

Join S.T.E.A.M. Machines at the east end of the Pier and check out the curious contraptions entered in the Los Angeles region’s inaugural Rube Goldberg Contest, alongside a kaleidoscope of innovative exhibitors.  Trash For Teaching will stage a make-your-own recycling machine station; try games galore courtesy Marbles the Brain Store; check out a 3D printer in action; and Pacific Park and iFly will present a thrilling physics lesson (think roller coasters and the Pacific Wheel). This day of innovation also includes tasty treats by Peddlers Creamery: artisan quality ice cream and non-dairy frozen delights churned by bicycle power; has to be seen – and tasted - to be believed. 

The S.T.E.A.M. theme continues at Heal the Bay’s Santa Monica Pier Aquarium, beach level just beneath the Carousel – where guests can pilot an underwater ROV, play with solar robots  and participate in an ocean explorers presentation

"The Pier has always been a place to inspire young minds, but with the expertise of Heal The Bay and TWC's Connect A Million Minds initiative, we've got a powerful platform for delivering STEM education in a really fun and novel way," said Pier Administrator Jay Farrand. 

A significant donation from Time Warner Cable helps support STEM education and outreach; a big thank you to the Santa Monica Pier Corporation for hosting S.T.E.A.M. Machines and for supporting playful learning in greater Los Angeles.
