Under the Stars
Joins the Kaleidoscope Discovery Center for our annual fundraiser supporting STEM opportunities for our area youth! This year’s Under the Stars theme focuses on space and will be held at the Lion’s Den in Rolla. With any luck the heavens will be clear and we’ll even be able to see the start of the Lyrids shower before the guests leave!
The Kaleidoscope had a banner year as we emerged from the pandemic. We’ve served over 2000 students just this past year expanding both the 4th-8th grade robotics program, and the Missouri Future City competition has grown to 50 teams from across Missouri with a few joining us from Arkansas! We’ve renewed our Memorandum of Understanding with the Missouri University of Science and Technology, partnered with 4-H STEM to promote Future City as a designated project throughout the state, and expanded the Rolla Merit Badge University in preparation for its 50th Anniversary next year! It is a great privilege to serve our community.
