Science Happens Here

Science Happens Here is a scavenger hunt card game that encourages students to discover the breadth of STEM-related activities happening daily in their local community. Local First Arizona and the Arizona SciTech Festival are presenting Science Happens Here to help advance STEM education in rural Arizona. Our hope is that parents will encourage their children to explore science and to have fun conducting simple experiments at home. This is a fun, safe and economical way to teach kids about the Science that surrounds them every day!
