Beltsville residents encouraged to attend interactive science expo

April 15, 2013 by  

Individuals and families from the Beltsville area will soon have an opportunity to explore the excitement of science firsthand.

In about two weeks, Montgomery College in nearby Rockville will be hosting its 24th annual Science Day. The services of a printing company are likely being used to promote and create informational materials for this event.

The mission of the expo is to prove that learning scientific principles can be fun. It aims to teach children and adults about space exploration, nature, biotechnology, and other scientific fields through engaging activities. Attendees will be able to peruse more than 60 exhibitor booths and take part in a wide variety of hands-on experiments, including rocket launching and robot programming. In addition, they will have a chance to interact with a number of live reptiles and birds. The event will also feature a flight demonstration.

Science Day has become a local tradition that attracts several thousand people every year. It continues to add new chemists, physicists, and other scientists to its list of exhibitors.

Representatives from the Rockville Science Consortium are once again the organizers of this event. In addition to Montgomery College, sponsors of the expo include the City of Rockville and the Rockville Science Center.

Science Day will take place on Sunday, April 28, at 51 Manakee Street. It will run from 12:00 pm until 5:00 pm. There will be no charge for admission or parking. Some activities may require on-site registration. Those who would like more information may call (240) FUN-8111.
