Fans of science will love the sixth annual Science Carnival set for Friday May 29 and Saturday May 30 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day

(Olympia, Wash.)  The Science Carnival is free and open to the public. The event offers hundreds of presentations from Evergreen science students with an emphasis on demonstration, hands on participation and fun. Designed for students kindergarten through grade 12 or anyone in the community with an interest in science, the Science Carnival will feature distinct presentations such as Kids and Chemistry, Mapping other Planets in our Solar System, Mendelian Genetics, and Making Biodiesel, including experiments that will engage the minds of school children and teenagers.   Participants can choose from as many as a dozen presentations at any given time. Each presentation lasts 30 to 60 minutes and many popular topics will be repeated over the two days.

Topics covered will include chemistry, computer science, biology, food science, health science, optics, physics, criminal science, astronomy, marine science, and others. Anyone with an interest in the physical world will enjoy the Science Carnival, the largest event of its kind in Washington State.
