Science here. Science there. Science everywhere, this Saturday throughout the UNCG campus.

Come learn about the ways science impacts us every day during UNCG Science Everywhere, a family-friendly interactive event of the NC Science Festival. It will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, 2015, on the UNCG campus.

The public is welcome to the event at no charge.

UNCG faculty, students and community groups plan more than 40 hands-on science activities across campus that are appropriate for all ages. Planned activities include making homemade lava lamps, creating a blinking LED badge, exploring wildlife in a stream, observing live amphibians and reptiles, and embarking on a geocaching hunt.

Visitors are asked to start the day at one of three Welcome Centers located in front of the UNCG School of Education Building, at McIver Parking Deck or at the UNCG Recreation Field. Free parking will be available in Oakland and McIver Parking Decks and C Lots 7, 8, and 9 on campus.
