The Nebraska Science Festival kicks off April 24 through April 27 at more than twenty sites in participating communities.
Topics range from atomic glowing slime, astronomy, rocket launches, weather, malolactic fermentation, stem cell science.
Presented by the University of Nebraska Medical Center, the Festival is designed to make science accessible, interactive, relevant and fun for kids and adults alike.
This year’s highlights include keynote speaker Jeff Corwin, who will share his passion for environmental conservation on April 25 during a sold-out presentation at Joslyn Museum’s Witherspoon Hall.
Another popular event is the free Science Expo on April 26 at The Durham Museum, which will feature hands-on experiments, as well as presentations by The Dancing Scientist (yes, chemistry experiments are set to music and involve dancing) and shows by the Omaha Children’s Museum that include Alka Seltzer rockets, flying toilet paper and atomic glowing slime.
