A statewide event is happening Monday night with the goal of sparking children’s interest in science and math. It’s called Moms Night Out for STEM.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Events are happening simultaneously throughout the state to inspire caretakers, particularly moms, to get hands on with their children’s math and science education.
There are 27 locations throughout Iowa but in Des Moines there are two events. One is at the Science Center of Iowa and the other is at the Blank Park Zoo. There is free admission for the zoo, but you must register in advance.
The events begin at 5:30 p.m.
