Connecting the Past with the Future
Give your students a unique opportunity to put science, technology, engineering and math concepts to work in a cutting-edge, interactive environment.
The Inasmuch Uncover-Discover STEM Lab integrates STEM concepts with history, stimulating learning and connecting the past with the future. It is an academically oriented experience that is geared toward middle and high school students.
The Uncover-Discover STEM Lab teaches the lessons learned from the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and its aftermath. Using large touch-screen tables, students work independently, then come together as a group to find solutions to their challenges – just as first responders to the Oklahoma City bombing had to work together in teams to save lives and investigate the crime. Currently, two lessons are available: Structures & Waves and Forensics & Investigation.
Middle and high school teachers from all disciplines can bring their students and meet state and national objectives focusing on STEM.
Available: Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Ages: Middle School and High School Students
Maximum Per Group: 126 Students
Cost: Free with Museum admission
This 3 hour experience includes:
- Interactive Uncover-Discover STEM Lab led by Memorial staff
- Tour of the interactive Memorial Museum
- Outdoor Symbolic Memorial interpretive talk led by a National Park Ranger
Structures & Waves
Learn how to build structures that can withstand different types of natural and man-made disasters, such as a tornado, hurricane, earthquake or explosion. Work together in teams to discover what materials are best suited for the various types of disasters – all while facing cost and engineering restraints.
Forensics & Investigation
Become a crime scene investigator and help solve the worst case of domestic terrorism on American soil. Work individually and in teams to collect and analyze evidence critical to the prosecution and ultimate conviction of those responsible for the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995.
