Raytheon STEM exhibit arrives

FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. – An interactive traveling exhibit that helps children have fun with math – MathAlive! – opens Saturday at the Emerald Coast Science Center. Presented by Raytheon to military family communities nationwide, the exhibit is designed to show the connection of math to many of the things they love, including music, sports, movies, games and more. The hope is to inspire young people in science, technology, engineering and math fields. The U.S. continues to fall short in ensuring there are enough future workers to fill the demand. MathAlive! will be presented at the Emerald Coast Science Center through Sept. 10 and is included with general admission. The museum is offering free admittance to active duty military and their families. (Source: PRNewswire, 08/01/17)
