First Saturday Science is a program designed by Metropolitan State University's Institute for Community Engagement and Scholarship (ICES) for community children of all ages to expand their exposure to science. Once a month, students are guided through an exploration of a specific field of inquiry in a hands-on laboratory.

December's science theme is magic sand. What happens when you charge the properties of sand so that it becomes hydrophobic, or "water fearing?" Will it still stick together when it gets wet? Check out First Saturday Science to find out.

The goal of this program is to demonstrate the accessibility of science: that it is for everyone to discover and experience and that it encompasses many diverse and realistic options for future careers.

No RSVP needed; simply show up at the venue at the right time. The event is free for children ages 11 to 14 years old.
