Looking for something to do on an upcoming BVSD day off? On Nov 11, Science Discovery is offering a free program to interested 5th-8th grade students! "Earth System Explorers" is a 3-hour workshop sponsored by the NSF-funded Boulder Creek Critical Zone Observatory (CZO).
We will be piloting a new series of engaging hands-on activities focused on water, snow, geology, climate, glaciers and rire in the Boulder Creek Watershed. Hands-on science activities will include: creating glaciers and using them to wear down mountains; building the Flatirons from the bedrock up; creating streams, rivers and valleys; exploring fire ecology, erosion and stream chemistry; discovering the secrets in snow-tubes; and more. This will be an action-packed morning of experiments, computer mapping, interactive games, hands-on science and fun!
When: Friday, November 11th, 2011, 9:00 AM -12:00 PM
Where: CU Science Discovery @ Science Learning Laboratory, 3400 Marine St (EAST CAMPUS), Boulder, CO.
This opportunity is limited to 10 students on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, please contact Anjali Maus at 303-735-2230 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
