Curiosity Cube: Sparking STEM Investigation

Article

This 22x10-foot, retrofitted shipping container that has been transformed into a mobile science lab is featuring hands-on science experiments to "spark" interest in STEM. 

A few experiences students will observe and participate in include learning about the role of DNA in living things and the importance it plays in deciding traits (why you look the way you do) and characteristics. Visitors will use touch screens to extract DNA and precipitation and "virtually" interact with cells.
