What does STEM and STEAM mean?

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEAM adds an “A” for art. STEM and STEAM are important because they pervade every part of our lives. Science is everywhere in the world around us. Technology is continuously expanding into every aspect of our lives. Engineering is the basic designs of roads and bridges, but also tackles the challenges of changing global weather and environmentally-friendly changes to our home. Mathematics is in every occupation, every activity we do in our lives. Through exposure to STEM/STEAM – related topics, people, especially students, can develop a passion for it and see the opportunities open to them in the STEM field. STEAMfest 2021 makes math and science both fun and interesting and helps create life-long learners!

Be sure to meet the Space Dinosaur!

On April 14, 2021, history was made as fossilized remains of a raptor dinosaur flew into space aboard the New Shepard 15 rocket flight. This was made possible through the partnership between Blue Origin’s Club for the Future and the Huntsville Science Festival. It is a part of the Dream Big Alabama program.

The fossilized bones that flew into space aboard Blue Origin’s New Shepard 15 (NS-15) rocket are from a dromaeosaurid, a dinosaur family also known as the “raptors.” This family was named after Dromaeosaurus, one of the first of these types of dinosaurs discovered. The space dinosaur bones are pieces of an arm bone that was discovered in the late 1980’s in what is known as the Hell Creek Formation of South Dakota, a layer of sedimentary rock that was deposited about 70 million years ago. The image above was created by paleoartist Dr. Julius Csontonyi and shows Dromaeosaurus as scientists think it looked.
