3rd Annual It's All About Science Festival

Description:

Come experience science first hand!

The It’s All About Science Festival is an annual celebration and exploration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics for all ages.

The festival is indoors, free of charge and open to the public. The event will include hands-on activities, demonstrations, live performances, and over 50 exhibits from regional students, educators and industries.

2014 Science Festival Headlining Performances

Doktor Kaboom! Performances
9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m.

Doktor Kaboom! takes his audience on an amazing educational tour of the modern scientific method, using humor and comedy while demonstrating spectacular applications of the physical sciences.

Join us for a sidesplitting journey of increasingly spectacular, and often successful, experiments and demonstrations. Doktor Kaboom! keeps his crowds riveted with interest and rolling with laughter.

Bubbleology Performances
10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m.

You can learn a lot from a bubble. Bubbleology enchants audiences of all ages with the art and science of soap bubbles.

As seen on Discovery Channel's "Time Warp", National Geographic TV and on-stage by invitation (twice) at America's largest science and engineering festival in DC, Keith Johnson uses bubbles—large and small—to explain liquids, solids and gasses, geometry, tension and pressure.

Johnson builds beautiful sculptural creations (massive and miniature) with enthusiasm, humor and style. One moment he will be encasing a dinosaur in a bubble and in the next moment he's encapsulating an audience volunteer.

Sanford Underground Research Facility LIVE BROADCAST
2 p.m.

Learn more about the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota, which advances our understanding of the universe by providing laboratory space deep underground, where sensitive physics experiments can be shielded from cosmic radiation.

Researchers at the Sanford Lab will explore some of the most challenging questions facing 21st century physics, such as the origin of matter, the nature of dark matter and the properties of neutrinos. The facility also hosts experiments in other disciplines—including geology, biology and engineering.

The Sanford Lab is located at the former Homestake gold mine, which was a physics landmark long before it was converted into a dedicated science facility.

Come and spend the day, with food vendors also on site for snacks and lunch.
