Come learn about the ways science impacts us every day during UNCG Science Everywhere, a family-friendly interactive event of the NC Science Festival. It will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 25, 2015, on the UNCG campus.

The public is welcome to the event at no charge.

UNCG faculty, students and community groups plan more than 40 hands-on science activities across campus that are appropriate for all ages. Planned activities include making homemade lava lamps, creating a blinking LED badge, exploring wildlife in a stream, observing live amphibians and reptiles, and embarking on a geocaching hunt.

Visitors are asked to start the day at one of three Welcome Centers located in front of the UNCG School of Education Building, at McIver Parking Deck or at the UNCG Recreation Field. Free parking will be available in Oakland and McIver Parking Decks and C Lots 7, 8, and 9 on campus.

A welcome table will be moved into the Coleman Building Atrium near the entrance from West Ave. The activities located on the Sullivan/Eberhart walkway will be moved into the Sullivan Building Lobby. There will be a welcome table in front of the McIver deck under a tent. The School of Education Building welcome table will be moved into that building’s lobby. The turtle sniffing dogs will be moved to the Coleman Building atrium.
