Super Science and Art Saturday at NCAR

February 22, 1996
BOULDER--The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) will host Super Science and Art Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, 9 March. Funded by a grant from the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, Super Science and Art Saturday is a day of collaborative activities designed to promote science literacy and enable area students, grades 5-12, and teachers to explore the relationship that exists between science and art.

Super Science and Art Saturday will offer a morning of science demonstrations, featuring NCAR scientists Peggy LeMone (Stories Clouds Tell) and Morris Weisman (Chasing Tornadoes), and an afternoon of workshops in scientific illustration, photography, computer graphics, and environmental clay printing. Morning events are open to the public. Students and teachers must pre-register for the afternoon workshops.

Public events for Super Science and Art Saturday include special hands-on activity stations hosted by the Denver Museum of Natural History, the Denver Zoo, Collage Children's Museum, and the Denver Botanical Gardens. NCAR's exhibits and art galleries will be open to the public as usual.

NCAR's Mesa Laboratory, designed by I.M. Pei, is located at the west end of Table Mesa Drive in Boulder and is open to visitors from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekends and holidays.
