SALT LAKE CITY — The University of Utah, Westminster College and Salt Lake Community College chapters of the American Chemical Society will be sponsoring a science festival this weekend.
The "Rock 'em, Sock 'em" science festival will be held at the University of Utah outside of the Skaggs Biology Building (ASB) Saturday, March 29, from 9 a.m. to noon.
The free event will feature a variety of chemistry, biology and physics activities. Members of the local chapters will present how to create CO₂ zip-line cars, CO₂ rockets and how to extract DNA from a strawberry, as well as how to tie-dye a pair of socks.
Festival participants will have the opportunity to race their handmade rockets and cars against others to win prizes.
"This is a fantastic opportunity for children of all ages to see science in their every day lives," said Zach Headman, a member of the University of Utah chapter of the American Chemical Society. "It is a chance to expose them to various different fields of science, while having fun with their friends and family."
The Skaggs Biology Building is located west of the Marriott Library. Parking will be available. Students and parents with children wanting to participate or attend the festival are encouraged to RSVP online.
