Science Education Enrichment Day (S.E.E.D.) is a family themed festival celebrating science, technology, engineering and math. The 33rd annual S.E.E.D. was held on the campus of USC Aiken on Satirday, October 6, 2018 and provided an opportunity for engagement and exchange between children, teens, families, and local STEM professionals and enthusiasts. It featured exhibitors who provided hands-on activities, interactive demonstrations, and family-oriented STEM entertainment. There were 3900 people in attendance this year!
I have fallen in love with the Parker Solar Probe and the idea of its 7 year mission to the Sun, but I wanted a hands-on activity for my young visitors. So, I chose magnetic fields, including those of the Earth and Sun, and how solar storms affect the Earth. It was a great day! A big thank you to my husband, who spent the day helping.
