Bellingham, Wash. – Whatcom Community College’s second annual STEM Carnival will be presented online May 11-15.

Examples of the hands-on activities include experimenting with electric currents and magnetic fields, building a catapult, creating a virtual maze, at-home chemical reactions, exploring renewable energy, and a rocketry “how to” guide.
