Girls, Science, and Technology

Saturday, November 9

10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Tomorrow’s scientists start today

Join Fox 9 and female engineers and scientists from organizations around the Twin Cities for this important event. It’s a brilliant and fun opportunity for girls to be introduced to the exciting worlds of science and technology through hands-on demonstrations and activities:

  • Explore the inside of a heart and practicing saving lives by deploying medical devices doctors use.
  • Learn how to code with interactive coding challenges.
  • Use a Glow Wall that can be used to draw with light.
  • See a life model of Titanoboa, a 42-foot long, 2500 pound snake from prehistoric South America that Dr. Alex Hastings helped discover with a group of researchers during his graduate fieldwork.

 


Join Dr. Alex Hastings for an exciting Titanaboa presentation!

60 million years ago, after the Age of the Dinosaurs, South America was home to the largest snake of all time. The massive Titanoboa slithered the forested waterways, reaching a titanic 42 feet in length and weighing 1.25 tons. Join SMM paleontologist, Dr. Alex Hastings who was on the discovery team, for an exploration of the science behind this giant snake!

Assemble 3D printed bones of Titanoboa, the largest snake of all time. Learn how these bones were used to better understand ancient climate and even help improve predictions for Earth's future!
