The Keweenaw Science and Engineering Festival is a four day event that brings learning and fun together for the whole family.
During Nerd Night, teenagers gathered at the Continental Fire Company in Houghton for hands-on activities hosted by Michigan Tech’s Physics Department.
MTU Laboratory Systems Associate Scott Rutterbush says that learning about science now will give these students a leg up in the future.
The activities may be fun, but Calumet High School Junior Hayley Williams says they also teach valuable lessons about science.
Nerds are not what they used to be. They are the cool kids now.
