Super Science Saturday to Demonstrate Super Cool Science
Free Public Event Takes Place October 30

October 25, 2004

BOULDER—There’s something super cool about Halloween, and it’s not just loads of free candy. Children, parents, and teachers are invited to Super Science Saturday at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) on Saturday, October 30, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., to experience “super cool science.”

The day’s events include science fun of all sorts. Kids can watch live demos by NCAR science wizards, participate in cool hands-on experiments in the Little Shop of Physics, and learn about the chilly polar regions of the globe and how animals and people there suit themselves for survival. In addition to science activity tables, the event includes a Halloween science maze, weather balloon launches, a slideshow on clouds, face painting, and more.

Super Science Saturday is funded by the UCAR Office of Education & Outreach and the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District in collaboration with Wild Bear Center for Nature Discovery.

The event takes place at NCAR’s Mesa Lab, located at the west end of Table Mesa Drive in Boulder. The Mesa Lab’s exhibits, art galleries, and science store will be open all day. The store features science kits, educational toys, books for all age levels, clothing, and more. Visitors can purchase lunch and snacks in the cafeteria.

For more information, the public may call (303) 497-1174 or go to
