Pax Museum Hosts STEAM Day for the Community

Get hands on with technology and art!

The Patuxent River Naval Air Museum will host its first annual Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) Day for the Community on Saturday, Feb. 10. The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the museum, 22156 Three Notch Road in Lexington Park. Regular museum admission prices apply.

“This event is the first of its kind here at the museum,” said Dan Bramos, Vice President of Activities for the museum. “We are eager to welcome the community to explore our newly re-opened exhibits, to learn about the intersections of art and science in aviation, and to have dedicated sponsors on hand to demonstrate how that technology is being used in the world today.”

Staff from local companies and organizations will be on hand all day to welcome visitors and children and to assist with a variety of hands-on demos. Local companies participating include:

  • ABSI Defense
  • Pax Space
  • NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center
  • Northrop Grumman
  • Build a Hero Mobile STEAM Bus
  • Usborne Books
  • Mathnasium
  • NAWCAD Mobile Fan Lab
  • NARHAMS Model Rocket Club
  • Artist Hank Caruso
  • Aerial photographers Erik Hildebrant and Liz Walter
  • Mary’s Arts Council
  • Annmarie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center
  • Calvert Marine Museum
  • NAWCAD Educational Outreach Office

“We really believe that kids learn best when they have a chance to see the applications of what they’re learning,” Bramos said. “And that’s why it is great when local experts are willing to come out and share what they do, letting kids get their hands on the tools and technology, and see how what they learn can fit into the world around them.”

In addition to hands-on exhibits, there will be food and drinks available for purchase, a “selfie station” for pictures, and appearances by Oscar Falco, the museum mascot.
