STEM Ambassadors Provide Enlightenment to Children’s World’s Fair Visitors


Members of the Louisiana chapter of Dow STEM Ambassadors welcome visitors to the Children’s World’s Fair at the Louisiana Children’s Museum.

Exploration was the name of the game at the Children’s World’s Fair at the Louisiana Children’s Museum, where Dow STEM Ambassadors led a number of engaging activities for the many visitors.

Robot demonstrations, making silly putty out of household ingredients and using  liquid nitrogen to create ice cream were just some of the experiences offered by members of the Louisiana chapter of STEM Ambassadors, a network of Dow employees dedicated to building public awareness and excitement around STEM fields.

It was the 17th annual Children’s World’s Fair, but the first time Dow was the event sponsor. The fair featured entertainment, literature, clothing and crafts from countries around the world, offering a way for children to broaden their horizons without leaving town.

"The Children's World's Fair provides children with an appreciation of what is unique and universal to the customs of our global community -- making our big world seem just a little smaller," Julia Bland, CEO of the Louisiana Children's Museum, said in a press release.
