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.
October's science theme is Just Like Magic. Accio Potterheads! While you're waiting for your Hogwarts letter to arrive, come join the Harry Potter themed workshop that consists of a collection of enchanted experiments and activities to bring some magic into your muggle life. Professor Kate Ries will also present a magic show from 1 to 1:15 p.m.
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 kids of all ages (youth under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian).
