    We love this event! Expertly organized by parent volunteer extraordinaire, Cynthia Port, we are introduced to myriad science fields through experiments, hands on activities, and magic! Join us for a seriously fun and educational evening that is wonderful for the entire family.
     
    If you have a scientific specialty to share or would like to volunteer/contribute in some other way, please contact Cynthia Port. Our huge thanks to the Ports for organizing this spectacular annual event!

    Like to swim in lakes? Think you're alone? Come peer into some microscopes to see who is swimming with you any time you are in a local lake! You'll be amazed by how many aquatic invertebrates and plankton call lakes their home.
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    music
     
    Good vibrations! Come learn how musical and speech sounds are made. What is the difference between high pitch and low pitch sounds? Why are some sounds pretty, and some sounds.... not so much?
