October is a busy month in the STEM world!
The calendar is filling up fast with a number of ongoing and upcoming events, including a series of coding parties sponsored by Girls Incorporated of Long Island. If you like Legos, you can check out a Lego Building Exhibit running through October 26th and a Lego Club being held each Sunday this month.
We're also celebrating the following National events:
Manufacturing Day is October 3rd
Earth Science Week is October 12 - 18; this year's theme is "Earth's Connected Systems"
National Chemistry Week is October 19 - 25; this year's theme is "The Sweet Side of Chemistry - Candy"
National Mole Day is October 23rd; this year's theme is "Mole-O'Ween"
Also relevant, but slightly off the STEM path, October is Connected Educator's Month, where the goal is to get more educators connected and to promote collaboration and innovation.
