BOULDER -- Explore lightning, tornadoes, butterflies, and balloons at the National Center for Atmospheric Research's Super Science Saturday, November 7, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at NCAR's Mesa Lab. Funded by Friends of UCAR (the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research) and a grant from the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, Super Science Saturday is a day of activities designed to promote science literacy and enrich the science experiences of area students and teachers.

In Super Science Showcases, NCAR's own science wizards will perform amazing science demonstrations. Drop-in workshops will introduce science photography or give K-8 students, teachers, and parents a head start on science-fair projects. Other events include Science Story Time, a Weather Trail scavenger hunt, weather-balloon launches, environmental clay printing demonstrations, and hands-on activities hosted by the Butterfly Pavilion, Collage Children's Museum, University of Colorado Science Discovery, the Denver Museum of Natural History, and Wild Bear Science School. NCAR's exhibits and art galleries will be open to the public as usual.

For more information, contact NCAR Outreach at 303-497-8612 or lcarbone@ucar.edu. Check out the event schedule on the World Wide Web. The Mesa Lab is located at the west end of Table Mesa Drive in Boulder.

NCAR's primary sponsor is the National Science Foundation. NCAR is managed by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, a consortium of more than 60 universities offering Ph.D.s in atmospheric and related sciences.
