STEAMpunk – Albert Baez at the Museum of Nature & Science

December 13, 2019

The Museum of Nature & Science presents “STEAMpunk – Albert Baez,” Saturday, December 21, 2019 at 11:30am. The program is free and open to the public.

Albert Baez (1912-2007) was a Mexican American physicist who invented the x-ray reflecting microscope which is used to examine living cells. These microscopes use reflected light instead of refracted light to focus x-rays on an object.

Inspired by his work, participants will use laser pointers, prisms, mirrors, and magnifying lenses to calculate the focal length of light rays and experiment with reflection.

“STEAMpunk” is offered monthly, highlighting the work of an historic scientist through hands on exploration. The content and activities are intended for ages 7-12.

The Museum of Nature & Science is located at 411 N. Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4:30pm and Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm. The museum is accessible from RoadRUNNER Transit Route 1 Stop 36.
