Smart Science Extravaganza

THIS IS A NC SCIENCE FESTIVAL SPONSORED EVENT.

Let your imagination do the work… Come out to the park and test your scientific knowledge of how things work by conducting various science experiments at stations that will be set up for you to work at. We will talk about buoyancy, electric currents, and other great science topics and test them through these amazing hands-on experiments. Prepare to get your hands wet. The possibilities are endless!
