(Olympia, Wash.) Fans of science will love the 10th annual Evergreen Science Carnival and Research Exposition taking place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1 at The Evergreen State College’s Olympia campus, 2700 Evergreen Parkway NW. The Science Carnival offers hundreds of presentations by Evergreen science students with an emphasis on demonstration, hands-on participation and fun. Designed for students from kindergarten through grade 12, or anyone with an interest in science, the presentations explore chemistry, computer science, biology, food science, health, physics, optics, geology, marine science and a wide range of other disciplines.
A sampling of workshops includes: Where the Wild Yeasts Are; FractWard; The Stars Are Your Guide; Organic Tie-Dye; Don’t Tell Mom the Daphnia’s Dead; and Nutrition – What Does Food Do for You? The event, the largest of its kind in Washington, is free and open to the public. For free parking on Friday, tell the parking attendant you are attending the Science Carnival. Parking is always free on Saturday.
Fun Fact: Nearly 30 percent of all academic credits earned at Evergreen are related to math and science and 14 percent of Evergreen alumni are employed in “high-demand” science fields: life, health, computer, mathematical, or physical sciences.
