By Cece Nunn, posted Mar 15, 2019
Cape Fear Museum is hosting Experience STEM-ILM, an evening to explore science, technology, engineering and math from 5:30 to 8 p.m. March 21.
 
The event will celebrate STEM partnerships in the Wilmington area and feature hands-on Science Salon experiences, a specialty cocktail, hors d’oeuvres and live entertainment, according to a museum news release.
 
Unique experiences include:
• Exploring health through virtual reality with the NHRMC Innovation Team
• Artificial intelligence learning with nCino
• Cyber currency with tekMountain
• Corning’s fiber optics process modeled through candy
• Facial recognition and augmented reality sandbox from Lapetus Solutions
• GE Nuclear Power Plant PRISM mock-up
• MarineQuest underwater remotely operated vehicle demonstration
• Wired Wizards student robot team
• A chance to meet astronaut Lawrence J. DeLucas
• Tesla Model X
 
The release stated that Skytown Beer Co. will be on hand to discuss the science of smoking barbecue and brewing, as well as sample sliders and local craft beer. Pine Valley Market will be catering with STEMthemed hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails. Live entertainment will be provided by The Schoolboys Trio and the Dance Element of Wilmington. Tickets are $20 for museum members and $25 for nonmembers and may be purchased online.
 
Event proceeds will bring educational and inspirational STEM programming to more students and families throughout the Lower Cape Fear region. Recognizing that 80 percent of jobs created in the next decade will require math and science skills, the release stated, museum education programs are designed “to spark curiosity and build enthusiasm for learning, increase familiarity with scientific settings and promote ease of family science discussions.”
 
Emily Bogan, director of product management at nCino and Cape Fear Museum Associates board member, said, “Committed to community service and inspiring the next generation through technology and education, nCino is proud to be a part of this local STEM initiative. This event is a great way to engage our community and we hope everyone comes out to experience the fun.”
