Mad About Science Festival

KALIHI (KHNL) - Everyone is invited to be a scientist at the 3rd annual Mad About Science Festival! From earth sciences and medical sciences to out-of-this-world space sciences, kids and their parents will enjoy dozens of activities to explore and discover. Learn about archaeology, marine biology, entomology, and other scientific areas of research.

Mad About Science offers a chance to experience science at Bishop Museum in a vast array of ways: from behind-the-scenes-tours of the Museum's natural science collections between 1 and 3:30 p.m., to telescopes on the lawn for solar viewing during the day and moon watching at night. Featured events this year include a lecture on global warming by biodiesel expert Kyle Datta in Bishop Museum planetarium at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.; regular astronomy presentations throughout the day in Watumull Planetarium and in an inflatable Starlab Planetarium; regular demonstrations at NOAA¹s Science on a Sphere; a chance to explore the Museum¹s permanent interactive exhibit, Global Warming, which opened in November 2006; and lots of hands-on activities from Bishop Museum¹s own Holoholo Science outreach program.

March 31, 2007; $3 admission (members and children 3 and under free) Great Lawn and Museum Buildings; 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
