Super Science Day for Grades 1-6 is April 21

Super Science Day will take place at the Purpur Arena (1110 7 Ave. S.) on Sunday, April 21, 1 to 4 p.m. The Dakota Science Center coordinates this annual free family event featuring hands-on science activities and informational exhibits for children in grades 1-6. Science, engineering, technology and math (STEM) activities are provided by UND faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, student organizations, government agencies, businesses and adult volunteers. Families with children will enjoy hands-on activities designed to spark an interest in the sciences during Super Science Day.

Super Science Day is part of National Environmental Education Week. To promote environmental science, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will be holding their Scout shows in the same arena. Greater Grand Forks residents will be able to bring their ink cartridges, laser cartridges, laptops, cell phones, PDAs, iPods, DVD movies, video consoles and games, digital cameras, working DVD movies, working scientific and graphing calculators and working GPS units for recycling. The Dakota Science Center uses the Cartridges for Kids program to raise money for hands-on science activities in our community.

Bring your used eyeglasses to donate to those in need. Drop them off at the Lions Club booth and get a free bag of popcorn. The Lions Club will have concessions for sale.
