Passport to STEM is a family-friendly event that will include hands-on science experiments and learning stations, the opportunity to help create a community art piece, and healthy snacks from all different cultures! Attendees will also get the chance to learn about the many different cultures represented at The Hormel Institute by our scientists, researchers, and staff.
