Our pre-show fundraiser, "A Blast from the Past!" at 'The Sixties Show' is this Sunday on October 15th at 5:00PM at the Nashua Center for the Arts, and you won't want to miss it!
This event, hosted by the Brian S. McCarthy Memorial Foundation, is not just about nostalgia and entertainment. It's about making a real difference in STEM Education in our beloved Nashua community. Tickets include admission to our private event on the Third Floor at 5:00PM with heavy hors d'oeuvres by Celebrations Catering, cash bar, raffles, live STEM Demonstrations, and roof top terrace access (weather permitting).
You can get your tickets to our pre-show fundraiser now! Click here for tickets! The Brian S. McCarthy Memorial Foundation has already achieved so much. In 2023 alone, we've awarded $20,000 in scholarships to graduating Nashua students. Since 2019, we've provided $55,800 in scholarships, grants, and donations. With 653 students impacted, 14 scholarships awarded, and 28 projects funded, our impact speaks volumes.
Joining us will be two special guests providing demonstrations! Last year, the Foundation sponsored Xploration ALC's new program, "Plasma Science!" Xploration provides in class hands on STEM learning experiences and demonstrations. Through the Plasma Science demonstration, guests will see positively charged electrons make objects fly, positively charge your hair, make lights turn on without using batteries, create sparks, and so much more!
We'll also be joined by students and mentors from Nashua's FIRST robotics team, the Nashua Tough Techs to demonstrate their robot! The Nashua FIRST robotics team was founded in 1991. FIRST is a program for promoting STEM learning in school aged children. Tough Techs 151 is a student led team and their competition robot is designed and built by students with mentors acting in an advisory role. The Foundation provided a community grant to the Tough Techs last year.
