If you’re looking for a local celebration of science during the upcoming North Carolina Science Festival, be sure to visit the UNC Science Expo.
The Expo will be held Saturday, April 14, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill. Admission is free. During this year’s UNC Science Expo, you’ll have the opportunity to go “behind the scenes” into cutting edge science labs and meet the scientists behind their discoveries.
The Expo will also feature hands-on activities, a science stage featuring action-packed shows and science storytelling and much more. You’ll even be able to meet a Nobel Laureate, UNC-Chapel Hill’s own Dr. Oliver Smithies.
The UNC Science Expo is appropriate for all ages and is a great way to spend the day with family, friends, scout troop or students. While on campus, plan to stay for the Carolina Spring Football Game at 3pm in Kenan Stadium. Admission is free.
The UNC Science Expo is a signature event of the North Carolina Science Festival, a two-week celebration of science April 13-29, 2012. Fine one of more than 500 Festival events near you at www.ncsciencefestival.org. The North Carolina Science Festival is proudly produced by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center.”
