BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! STEM Saturdays in the Park!

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! STEM Saturdays in the Park!
The San Diego Air & Space Museum’s popular STEM Saturday Kits are re-launching this Saturday, March 13, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Unplug for a day of Family Fun in the newly-renovated Palisades in Balboa Park with ample space to spread out and enjoy the San Diego sunshine, grab a beverage and a snack from the San Diego Air & Space Museum coffee cart, and pick up a STEM kit from our open gift shop. Packed with engaging, hands-on activities, the STEM kits provide children ages 6-10 with fun things to do, see, and explore.

Saturday’s Space-themed STEM kit contains:

  • Astronaut Ice Cream
  • Alka-Seltzer rocket pack
  • Posable Astronaut
  • Hi-Y high flyer
  • DIY Hammerhead-X glider
  • Galaxy face mask and SDASM hand sanitizer
  • Color-on tote box and crayons
  • 10% off coupon for the rest of the store
  • One coupon for a FREE small hot chocolate at the SDASM Coffee Cart

This $40 value is available for purchase for only $22, or the price of one ticket to the Museum. Plus, proceeds from the kits support the Education Department's commitment to providing high-quality STEM programming to underserved students experiencing financial hardship.

Families are urged to arrive early because the STEM kits sold out last time.

What is STEM?
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Can more than one child share a kit?
Of course! However, we do offer a Sibling Add-On in case you would like multiples of some of the items included in the kit. For an additional $8, you will receive another astronaut ice cream, Alka-Seltzer rocket pack, galaxy face mask, and hot chocolate coupon.

Do I need to bring anything?
Only a positive attitude! The goal of STEM Saturdays is to give your family a fun and easy day in the park while also developing critical thinking and problem solving skills, so the kits do not require supplemental materials, just a willingness to try new things and learn from each other.
