Ott Planetarium is hosting Science Saturday again this coming weekend, April 12, from Noon – 5:00 PM in the Lind Lecture Hall here at Weber State. Free planetarium shows, fun hands-on activities, and open doors at the Museum. I have it on good authority that we’ll have biology students and members of science teaching club mentoring families on various bugs. If we’re lucky, you can even train termites. (I’m not kidding — it’s marvelous to see.)
That’s the good news. The bad news is that this may be our last Science Saturday for a while as we brace ourselves for construction. The upper floor of the Lind Lecture building is getting a small facelift so that we can make better use of classrooms. This is important so that we can get some elbow room while we’re waiting for the new science building. It’s still a little painful, though. Get in some fun science this weekend, and then look ahead to a summer with some camps and parks activities.
