Wednesdays and Saturdays in March and April 2019

Designed for young people and their grown-ups. Each lab focuses on a specific topic through a series of stations that provide hands-on activities for active, family-friendly experiences and lifelong learning. Look through microscopes, observe specimen, partake in crafts and games, and think like a researcher. Meet scientists! Penn State faculty and graduate students participate as speakers, sharing their work with the general public in an intimate setting. Each participant receives a field notebook (while supplies last) to use at home.
