Children enjoyed the many hands-on activity tables, run by CU Science Discovery, the Wild Bear Center for Nature Discovery, Collage Children's Museum, and the Rocky Mountain Wildlife Conservation Center (operated by Shelley Richards-Craig, of F&A, and Pat Craig). The event also featured play areas for exploring two educational toys, Fractiles and Wedgits; workshops on lasers, the scientific process, and other topics; and a science photography slide show by Nederland photographer Carlye Calvin.
"The science demonstrations were fantastic," says Linda Carbone (E&O). "I think everything went very, very well."
Super Science Saturday is funded by Friends of UCAR and a grant from the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District.
