Whatcom Community College's STEM Carnival goes virtual May 11-15, 2020

Whatcom Community College’s second annual STEM Carnival will be presented online May 11-15, 2020. Families, children, teens, and adults are invited to explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) from home through free interactive activities led by WCC faculty and students. A live event is planned for 3:30 p.m. Thursday, May 14.


Examples of the hands-on activities include experimenting with electric currents and magnetic fields, building a catapult, creating a virtual maze, at-home chemical reactions, exploring renewable energy, and a rocketry “how to” guide. Activities are meant for all ages and will utilize materials often found at home.

Virtual STEM Carnival is sponsored by Emerson Electric Co., Whatcom Community College Library, and Village Books.

About Whatcom: Whatcom Community College in Bellingham, WA is regularly recognized as one of the top 150 community colleges in the nation by the Aspen Institute. The College, a destination for cybersecurity, healthcare and business studies, offers a bachelor of applied science degree, transfer degrees, career preparation, online courses, and community education classes. While WCC's physical campus is closed, our online services and commitment to student success continue.


        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
