March 17th we'll be exploring the biggest advances in science but looking at engineering on the smallest scale. Hands-on, family friendly activities will help explain how nanotechnology is changing everything we do from using cell phones to take medicines. There will be additional activities at The Science Zone all day long. We'll also be dissecting technology like computers and old electronics to see how nanotechnology helps us everyday.
The 2017-2018 Science Zone Activity Guide is out! Check out all of the great and NEW programs we have this year, like our Saturday DIY MakerSpace!
Bloodsuckers are invading! Explore the science of what’s biting you! Examine the what, why, when and how of mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, leeches and other parasites. Feel for heat—bloodsuckers need a hot meal! Locate CO2 in your breath that attracts mosquitoes. Find a vein in an arm, and match suckers by their mouth parts. Play the itchy TwITCHer Game! Learn why bloodsuckers are important to the ecosystem—and how to keep them out of YOUR system. Creepy good fun!
As with all Science Zone Classes and activities, scholarships are available. Inquire about scholarships at the front desk of The Science Zone.
