Turning kids onto science is a goal for most educators. And science does not have to be boring. Explore more that 24 hands-on science demonstration and activities at Regis University during Science Sunday on April 7 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The FREE event will fill the Pomponio Science Building with hands-on activities geared toward elementary and middle-school students.
“The secret is out! Science Sunday is an event that our community looks forward to every year,” says event organizer Quyen Hart, an associate professor of physics and astronomy. “The stars of our event are the Regis college students, who run all the STEM activities. They get our visitors excited about learning science and kids walk away with memorable learning experiences.”
Visitors of all ages can learn about neuroscience, biology, astronomy, math and physics. Kids will learn about the planets while making solar-system bracelets, learn about the five senses in the neuroscience department and forces and collisions in the physics lab.
Kids will have a “STEM passport” to fill out and exchange for a free drawstring bag, filled with goodies (while supplies last).
Weather permitting, telescopes will be placed on the campus’ Boettcher Commons for observing the sun through safety lenses.
Stop by the “Ask a Scientist” booth and chat with Regis faculty about particle physics, genetics, chemical reactions, black holes and more.
Campus parking is free on weekends. 3333 Regis Blvd. (all floors of the Pomponio Science Center), Denver.
