Girls' Science Saturdays is a unique opportunity for the girls of Knox County to experience science. We inspire interest in the physical sciences by providing a fun and encouraging environment to learn and practice scientific thought. Led by Kenyon College students and scientists, participants will use cutting-edge techniques to explore new ideas and learn scientific methods used in contemporary scientific research. You'll definitely learn something new - and build some pretty neat stuff too!
Available to all middle school girls (grades 6-8). Registration begins at 8:30 am. The program begins at 9 am and goes until 1:30 pm. This event is free and includes lunch. For up to date announcements, like us on Facebook!
Registration is now closed.
What does a magician whipping a tablecloth out from under a glass have in common with bouncing balls and waves in a pool? Come try your hand at the magic trick and find out! You’ll learn how quantum mechanics affects us in the real world, and what keeps the glass on the table.
Saturday turned out to be an explosive end for the girls' week. They built and launched rockets and made telescopes to watch the stars. What a great way to learn about astronomy and astrophysics.
