WOW! Demonstrations

WOW! Demonstrations logo

Our WPAFB volunteers offer various STEM presentations in their fields of expertise for your students. We can present these in-person or remotely using Zoom or Google Meet.

Presentations include live interaction and teaching while demonstrating an activity and/or running an experiment, all while hosting an educational Q&A session.

Materials for your students are not necessary for these demonstrations.
