Sandia/New Mexico hosted more than 1,800 students across the Labs on April 26 for a combined celebration of Kids Day (formerly Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day) and Earth Day. Students in grades 5-12 came with parents, friends, and relatives to learn more about their hosts’ work and Sandia’s mission. Students enjoyed more than 50 energizing activities around the Sandia campus with the goal of inspiring the next generation of leaders in science, technology, engineering, and math careers.
The range of STEM events for the students included hands-on tours of laboratories, panel discussions, a tree planting for Earth Day and cookie baking using solar ovens at the Solar Tower. (Photos by Randy Montoya)
