STEM Pool Party and Engineering Challenge LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

Palm Springs is all about hanging by the pool! Join CSTA for a fun evening of music, networking, and more around the largest swimming pool in Palm Springs! The Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel pool deck features cabanas, fire pits, and a heated swimming pool. CSTA and the UCR Bourns College of Engineering/MESA program will add a twist to the standard pool party scene with engineering challenges! Register your team for the cardboard boat challenge (teams of 2 to 4) and race across the swimming pool, try to build a stomp rocket that will clear the pool, or just kick back and enjoy the music of Tim Griffin. Tim Griffin is a former educator and music artist specializing writing and performing science and educational songs. To get a sneak preview of his music visit www.TimGriffinMusic.com.  Be sure to buy your ticket, only $10, for this fun and new event. No need to find a place to have dinner in town before the event, your $10 ticket entitles you to $10 worth of food and drinks from the hotel BBQ and bar at the event to help fill your belly and fuel the conversations. The BBQ and bar will feature drinks, hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, and salads.
