DIY Science Zone Basics

Come be an engineer, biologist, chemist, entomologist, or astronomer — the sky is no limit! Our highly-trained team of scientists and science educators will be on-hand to guide you through a host of fun experiments and answer all of your questions about their science specialism. Attendees of all ages are welcome, and all experiments are kid friendly!

Step into the DIY Science Zone on the first floor across from registration on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
