DISCOVER THE FUN IN SCIENCE!
Science is anything but “weird” and it can “blind” you with the most amazing and astonishing facts about our universe, our planet, and how it touches our lives every day. Reid Park Zoo is partnering with S.Y.STEM Coalition for a Science Day at the Zoo on Saturday, February 17th from 10am – 2pm. There will be a wide variety of science-based activities such as Non-Newtonian fluids, oobleck making, static electricity, numbers game, robotics, miniature world of animals, self-watering plant, life sciences and radiology, experiments pertaining to reflexes, slime, geology, plate tectonics, semi-conductors, solar scopes for sun viewing, sand to silicon, paper airplanes, adaption to predators, and much more. Zoo educators will do activities based on enrichment and exclusion feeders. Our Cafe will be providing samples of “fizzy fruit.”
