This year, we are excited to introduce a new feature to the Whole Earth and Watershed Festival, the S.T.E.A.M. Tent! This tent will feature activities focusing on S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) subjects, for youth ages 8-18. The S.T.E.A.M. Tent will be located in the Sculpture Park just north of the Council Chambers!
Some of our features will include:
~ TAPIGAMI: TAPIGAMI is a contemporary art form created by Sacramento artist Danny Scheible. Using masking tape, he creates wonderful pieces of art designed to engage and educate artists of all ages. Please check out TAPIGAMI on their website!
~ Take-A-Party: Come and deconstruct old electronic devices! We will have a multitude of old appliances that have been donated to us for taking apart to see how they work. Ever wonder what is inside a microwave? Come find out!
~ Virtual Reality Station: We will have three stations set up in this tent equipped with Virtual Reality headsets. Come experience this exciting new technology!
Here is a video you can check out to get a taste!
~ Birdhouse Construction: Come and learn all about the importance of birdhouses to our local and migrating bird friends by members of the Wintu Audubon Society AND then build one to take home! There will be 2 sessions offered: 11:30am and 2pm so be sure to stop by the S.T.E.A.M. Tent during one of these times!
