Super Science Saturday

Despite six inches of early season snow on the roads, 4,700 children, teachers, and parents attended Super Science Saturday at the Mesa Lab on October 21. “The building’s seams were busting, but the energy was wonderful,” says EO’s Linda Carbone. Interest was so great that NCAR’s science “wizards” performed an extra show and the Science Store stayed open late.

An annual event, Super Science Saturday combines science education with Halloween fun. The theme this year was “A New Light on Science,” with demonstrations of the principles of infrared and ultraviolet light, gamma rays, X-rays, and more.
