Featured STEAM Week Events
Check out MUCH more down below in the STEAM Activities Calendar.
Decoupage is the craft of personalizing items with decorative paper and adhesives. Come have some creative fun, learn something new, and make things while you drink a few tasty beers! *Oh, and it’s free (the decoupage, not the beers)!
We provide all the materials for creating a unique, votive candle holder or tin! (Bring something you want to upcycle or you can use one of our items!) Also, this is a Family Friendly event…but 21+ to drink beer of course.
Location: Mash Lab Brewing, 4395 Highland Meadows Pkwy, Windsor, Colorado 80550
Join us for a very special – and earlier in the month than normal – Science & Spirits with Dimitri Klebe, president at the National Space Science & Technology Institute (Pikes Peak Observatory). Dimitri will be traveling to Lyons with the Mobile Earth and Space Observatory (MESO). The mobile observatory will be parked at the distillery starting at 6 pm, when you can talk to Dimitri and his colleagues and even take a look inside! At 7 pm, Dimitri will present on the topic of Scientific Imaging and Visualization, and – as always – we’ll have special, themed cocktails.

Explore the dramatic images produced by remote sensing! Satellite data is used to track landscape changes like fires, hurricanes, and other natural hazards, as well as land use and climate change over time. These high resolution images of Earth are taken every week, and similar imaging is taken of astronomical regions. Experience the scientific visualization of imagery using Landsat satellite and Hubble telescope images, and explore the changing Universe.
