Have you checked out the First Saturday Science at Metropolitan State University events yet? Colleges are a great resource for science events. They are free and geared towards kids of all ages, although kids 18 and under need to have an adult with them.
Each month has a different theme. The theme for November 2nd will be Switch On—The Power of Electricity
Kids of all ages are invited to take a closer look at how electricity works, where it comes from, and how it can transform our future!
Electricity is the most versatile energy source on Earth, and it has played a vital part in history. But it could play a much different role in our future as we transition to more renewable forms of electric power.
Saturday, Nov. 2 from Noon to 2 p.m.

Additional information about the “First Saturday Events”
Free and open to the public. No RSVP needed. Youth under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
First Saturday Science is a program for children of all ages to expand their exposure to science. Once a month, kids are guided through an exploration of a specific field of inquiry in a hands-on laboratory at Metropolitan State University. The goal of this program is to demonstrate the accessibility of science: that it is for everyone to discover and experience and that it encompasses many diverse and realistic options for future careers. Activities are designed and led by Metropolitan State students.
