BOOM would love to connect more with middle and high school-aged students, so we are providing a special pre-event showcase introduction for 5th-12th grade students!
Although we realize that BOOM falls during the spring break for many schools, we hope that you will help us encourage students to come on their own or with their families. We’ve found that BOOM really excites students and gets them thinking about how science and technology can factor into their future education and career plans, so this can serve as an enrichment, or even extra credit (depending on the teacher), activity that students could work into their breaks.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to come, since we have a limited number of parking permits available, as well as food and t-shirts!
