The University of Texas at Brownsville will open its doors Friday night to teach the community about the science, technology, engineering and math fields. 

The South Texas Engineering Math and Science Initiative is a way to give the community a better understanding of those fields, Javier Garcia, director of the STEM outreach programs, said.

“If you want to be better informed on what NASA is doing and learn more about careers in science, engineering and technology, this is a good opportunity to do so,” Garcia said.

The S.T.E.M. Fest Community Night will feature keynote speaker Dr. Michael E. Zolensky, co-investigator of the STARDUST Dis covery Mission and associate curator for Stratospheric Dust at NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Garcia said. Zolensky will talk about comets and meteors.

After Zolensky’s lecture, Eddie Gonzales, the administrator of the Education Office at the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab oratory, will use his high-tech equipment to learn about space science, Garcia said.

During similar events, Garcia said more than 300 people have arrived on campus for lectures.

The event is free to the public. To reserve seats, call the S.T.E.M. office at (956) 882-5058.
