Science Day for Kids set for March 24

Fifth- and sixth-grade students are invited to attend the annual Science Day Saturday, March 24, at the UND medical school. The free event is designed to stimulate children's interest in science and features a hands-on approach to learning. It is organized and hosted by the UND chapter of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA).

Participating students may choose to attend either the morning session (9 a.m. to noon), with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m., or afternoon session (1 to 4 p.m.), with registration beginning at 12:30 p.m.

Supervised by medical students, activities will focus on human health and anatomy, the heart and the importance of exercise, awareness of the dangers of tobacco use, "grossology," medical instruments and how they're used, and various projects that demonstrate scientific principles.
