STEM Saturday:
11
During this event you would be working with students that are in 6-8 grades.
12
QESST takes over 2 classrooms of students. There are approx 30 students in each class.
13
Normally, we have 1 grad student who leads a discussion and an activity and another grad student
14
who supports. There is also a classroom teacher for assistance. The activity can be one that is
15
premade such as our solar cars, ovens, pumps, amusment park OR it can be one you suggest.
16
Whatever activity you decide needs to be FUN and a Hands-on Activity.

ASU Homecoming:

ASU's annual Homecoming Blockparty showcases many different events and booths for a 4 hour
20
period. The time is not announced normally until the week before. This depends on if our football
21
game will be televised. It is typically a large event and the more volunteers we have the better
22
we can represent QESST to the public. All QESST scholars are expected to participate.

Last year's activities included: Thin Films, making solar cells, solar cells and motors with kids,
24
picture opportunities- dressing up to go in the clean room.
