Just One Look

It seems to be Santa at first glance, but this is actually a young wizard (note the stars on the shoulder) working with a Zometool at the Mesa Lab during Super Science Saturday. The annual event brought about 1,800 kids, teachers, parents, and other folks to the mesa on 28 October for hands-on workshops and demonstrations of "frighteningly good science." Staff from the Denver-based Zometool company sponsored workshops on Zomes and fractals that drew hundreds of kids. NCAR and UCAR activity leaders were joined by the Rocky Mountain Wildlife Conservation Center (operated by Shelley Richards-Craig, of F&A, and Pat Craig), whose mountain lions helped to illustrate the importance of wildlife conservation. Super Science Saturday is funded by Friends of UCAR and a grant from the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District. (If you're playing Santa for wizards in your household, check out the Zome products and other items on sale at the NCAR Science Store.)
