Northen visited 22 classes and met about 525 K5 students. He pushed a cart of science demos aimed at encouraging STEM careers and participation in the school’s science fair. This was his third year inspiring students to be more interested in science and this time he was joined by his brother Dr. Mike North who is currently on Outrageous Acts of Science in the Science Channel.
