Science Happens Here, in Kingman!
October 7th - November 15th
Ready? Set? Play! Starting today, 3-5th grade students at Kingman Unified School District and the Kingman Academy will be exploring town to collect the 5 Science Happens Here playing cards hidden in the community.
Each card talks about different Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, or Math activities happening right here in Kingman and feature simple experiments to continue the learning at home! Students are competing against the other classes in the district to try to collect the most cards. At the end of the game (November 15th) the classroom with the most collected cards wins a visit from the Arizona Science Center!
Psst... Here’s where the cards are hiding:

More about Science Happens Here
The Arizona Rural Development Council partners with the Arizona SciTech Institute to provide an avenue for the local businesses community to collaborate with the school system. Science Happens Here bridges the gap between formal and informal learning environments by showcasing the breadth of STEAM-related activities happening outside the classroom on a daily basis.
“Science Happens Here is Sneaky Science at its best,” said Jeremy Babendure, Executive Director of the Arizona SciTech Institute. “It not only showcases to the public how STEAM happens all around us but also empowers business and community leaders to become communicators of science.”
Science Happens Here is made possible by the continued support of the Rural Activation and Innovation Network (RAIN).
