Craft Lake City STEM Lab: ValenSlime

At STEM labs, we use scientific principles in creative new ways, and our special guest scientist Beth Drees will explain not just HOW to make slime, but WHY the whole thing works! Using this new chemical knowledge, kids are encouraged to create test batches of slime to explore their favorite textures by experimenting with different combinations of ingredients until they find the perfect recipe. Once their slime is just right, we’ll use ratios to create a mega-batch, add their favorite custom mix-ins, and package individual portions to hand out as special DIY valentine gifts for the whole class. Even grown ups will have fun engineering fascinating new goops with their kids, and at the end, everyone will walk away feeling like a chemical engineer.

This workshop will be held at the STEM Action Center’s Innovation Hub in Millcreek (from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.), where you can have all the fun of slime and leave the mess behind! Please note: a parent or guardian must be in attendance with their child/children. The $29 ticket allows entry for one child and one parent. An additional $10 for entry of another child with that ticket.

46th Annual Utah Asian Festival

Thank you for our tremendously successful 45th year! With such strong support from our local communities and sponsors, we are proud to announce the 46th Utah Asian Festival in 2023. Our event benefits all Utahns, offering a glimpse at how traditional practices have been preserved and upheld in our state. This festival not only connects new Americans, immigrants, and refugees to the more historic ethnic groups in our state, but also brings our diverse ethnic communities together. Our celebration is an opportunity for all to reunite with old friends; build new friendships; meet our various communities, leaders, and elders; and seek new opportunities to be involved and support our diverse Utah Asian communities. This year’s festival will honor our communities through traditional and modern performances, children’s activities, and spotlights on cultural, nonprofit, and commercial organizations. As always, food trucks and food booths featuring local businesses will be on site serving delicious food and refreshments. We’ve listened to your feedback and are actively working to bring you the best event possible!
