Meet real live scientist!!!
Physicists from the University of Arkansas will lead exciting activities like "Fluffy Silver" where guests will immerse thin copper wire in solutions of silver nitrate and observe the growth of solid silver (appearing fluffy) on the copper wire using naked eyes and optical microscopes.
Also on the list...Itsy Bitsy Bugs! Grab a smartphone equipped with magnifiers (we'll help you with that part) and observe “itsy bitsy” crustaceans – Daphnia – from a local lake.
