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.
November's science theme is Switch On: Power of Electricity. Attendees will take a closer look at how electricity works, where it comes from and how it can transform our future. 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).
