May TACNY Junior Cafe Scientifique: "Welcome to 3D Printing"
Saturday, May 21, 2016
9:30 AM - 11:00 AM


TACNY Junior Café Scientifique features an informal discussion with a scientist, engineer or technologist every month during the school year. This month's speaker is John Mangicaro, instructional technology analyst, manager, and lead facilitator of Syracuse University's MakerSpace.

The topic is "Put Your Phones Down, We Are Going To Make Something: Welcome to 3D Printing!" Have you ever had an idea for anything from an action figure to a biomechanical moving arm? Well, now you can make them come to life with 3D printing. 3D building techniques are being used in many areas, including house building, modeling, and food production.

Talks are aimed at middle school students, who must be accompanied by a parent or adult. After the event, students and their parents are invited to tour the MOST's exhibits for free. The event is sponsored by the Technology Alliance of Central New York. A light breakfast is served before the event. Please RSVP to jrcafe@tacny.org so TACNY knows how many people will be attending.

Central New York Rocket Team Challenge
Saturday, June 04, 2016
8:00 AM - 2:00 PM


The first Saturday of June, hundreds of Central New York students from Central New York propel rockets into the sky. Launches take place at Syracuse Universitys Skytop field.

Students build rockets from kits and decorate them to their liking. Once assembled, the rockets are loaded with an altimeter, camera, rocket motor and an egg astronaut for launch. The students get to interact with college faculty and professional engineers when they are judged on the quality of their construction, knowledge of the subject, how well they estimated their trajectory, and whether or not their "eggstronaut" survived its ride into the sky.

Awards are given in two categories: junior for grades 4 through 8 and senior for grades 9 through 12. The launches are fun to watch and the general public is invited to attend this free event.

For more information and to register, link to our main rockets page.

Age Level: Grades 4-12
Cost: FREE

June TACNY Junior Cafe Scientifique: "The Astonishing Power of Your Brain"
Saturday, June 18, 2016
9:30 AM - 11:00 AM


TACNY Junior Café Scientifique features an informal discussion with a scientist, engineer or technologist every month during the school year. This month's speaker is Corey Nathan White, PhD, an assistant professor in the cognition, brain, and behavior area of Syracuse University's Department of Psychology.

The topic is "The Astonishing Power of Your Brain." Although it is small, the human brain is one of the most important organs in our bodies. From helping us remember where the car is parked, to inspiring us to write a new song, the brain is what makes it all happen. Explore the world of Cognitive Neuroscience with Dr. White and learn how this magical organ allows us to do such amazing things, and why this small object in your head is what makes you who you are.

Talks are aimed at middle school students, who must be accompanied by a parent or adult. After the event, students and their parents are invited to tour the MOST's exhibits for free. The event is sponsored by the Technology Alliance of Central New York. A light breakfast is served before the event. Please RSVP to jrcafe@tacny.org so TACNY knows how many people will be attending.

MOST Summer Camp: Mission to Mars
Monday, July 18, 2016 through Friday, July 22, 2016


NASA is planning its first human trip to Mars in the 2030s, but your children don't have to wait that long. They can launch into a planetary adventure this summer with the MOST's Mission to Mars camp.

These astronauts-in-training will explore current and past NASA projects to inspire their natural curiosity. Campers will complete an astronaut training obstacle course, design a Mars lander, get engrossed in the stars during a planetarium show, and experience a taste of what it's like to live in space.

They'll also have plenty of time to explore the museum and much more. This week is for children age 7 to 10. Get all the details here.

Age Level: Ages 7 to 10

The MOST is proud to join Codemania in bringing in a summer camp focused on coding and STEM activities for children ages 8 to 12.

The camp will run 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday in five weekly sessions from Aug. 1 to Sept. 2. Attendees will be introduced to the basics of coding and problem-solving while creating with Scratch, programming mobile app games, and learning robotics. Campers will also explore the MOST's exhibits and be exposed to various science topics.

Our mission is to provide educational enrichment to students by utilizing summer vacation time and alternative educational methods to equip young minds with STEM-based curriculum opportunities.

Tuition for each week of camp is $380. For more information, contact the organizers or check out the Codemania website.
