Hubble telescope featured at STEM ILM event

Cape Fear Museum is hosting a night of science and entertainment all in one at its annual STEM ILM event. 

Presented by nCino, a Wilmington based banking fintech company, STEM ILM takes place for adults 18 and over on Thursday, Feb. 8, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., offering hands-on activities in science, technology, engineering, and math. 

The event will feature the grand opening of the Hubble space telescope, and the Science + You traveling exhibition. Tech chats from astronaut Lawrence J. DeLucas and GE Hitachi nuclear energy company are also planned. 

Craft cocktails and space themed appetizers will be provided by Pine Valley Market, and live music will be performed by Wilmington’s The Hot Flashes, an all women pop, rock, and R&B band. 

Advanced tickets can be purchased at $25 for museum members and $30 for non-members here. Some tickets will be available for purchase at the door for $35. 

Proceeds from the event will go toward bringing more STEM related features to the museum’s education programs, like field trips and virtual learning projects.
