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). The program begins at 9:00 a.m. and goes until 1:30 p.m. Registration is free, and lunch will be provided. For up to date announcements, Like us on Facebook! www.facebook.com/girlssciencesaturdays
This Saturday will be an explosive end for your week. We will build and launch rockets and make telescopes to watch the stars. Come learn about astronomy and astrophysics – it’ll be out of this world! Register online.
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. Please check back to register in early January.
