Millipore Sigma offered ConVal Regional High School the opportunity to host the company’s Curiosity Cube on its national tour this week. Students from all schools in the district were welcome to book an exploratory tour during the two days that the Cube was available in Peterborough.
The Cube is a large shipping container that has been converted into a mobile laboratory. According to Millipore, the aim of the Curiosity Cube is to spark interest in the sciences.
“As a life science company, curiosity has always been the force that drives us and continues to motivate us,” the Millipore website explains. “The Curiosity Cube® is an extension of our desire to put our expertise in science and technology to work for human progress.”
“The Curiosity Cube program began in 2017, as a platform to increase access to science education in elementary and middle schools. The concept of The Curiosity Cube is actually based on our Curiosity Labs™ program, in which our employees go into classrooms and conduct hands-on experiments with a class.”
“With the Curiosity Cube, we’re able to extend our impact beyond the classroom and reach even more students and their families.”
