STEMosphere event offers free science activities for students and families

Rube Goldberg construction competitions, human-powered snow cone and pancake machines, and demonstrations of underwater robotics all are part of the fun at STEMosphere, a free hands-on science and technology expo open to students, families and the community. The event takes place from 9:30 a.m.–4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, in the Daniel L. Ritchie Center for Sports and Wellness on the University of Denver campus. More than 30 exhibitors will be on hand, including Butterfly Pavilion, Children’s Museum of Denver and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

STEMosphere is part of Share Fair Nation, a STEM-focused education event that also includes free professional development classes for teachers. Share Fair was started five years ago by Denver philanthropists John and Carrie Morgridge as a free series of daylong intensive teacher workshops.

“We have helped more than 10,000 teachers use technology in their classrooms,” Carrie Morgridge says. “To me, success is getting a letter from one of those teachers who is connecting to her students because she finally has the right tools in her classroom to teach each child at his or her own pace.”
