The Winston-Salem Science Bridge will be a free of charge, outdoor, knowledge-based fair with booths set up on both sides of the Long Branch Trail walking bridge located in downtown Winston-Salem’s Innovation Quarter. This strategic location symbolizes a bridging of ideas, resources, and opportunities between Winston-Salem’s many science-related entities and the city’s community. A portion of the trail will be lined with stands and booths offering a variety of specialties where STEM-oriented researchers, educators, and those who may not traditionally be considered part of the STEM community, will be present to interact with and display Science in new and innovative ways. STEM booths, as well as art and cultural activities related to STEM will be located along the trail, each featuring some of the unexpected and surprising ways that Science is present in our daily lives!
The Science Bridge will begin at the 3rd street entrance to the Long Branch Trail where community members will be greeted and receive information including a brief description of each stand or booth, along with their activity’s STEM field, and the STEM partner’s contact information. As guests walk through the fair, they will be invited to partake in a series of activities, lessons, and crafts led by each STEM partner. Winston-Salem is saturated with STEM research, education, and innovation. By incorporating multiple community groups that exist at the intersection of art and Science, The Science Bridge event will create a uniquely comprehensive STEM fair that caters to all interests!
