Colleges are a great resource for science events. Have you checked out the First Saturday Science at Metropolitan State University events yet? They are free and geared towards kids of all ages, although kids under 18 need to have an adult with them.
Each month has a different theme. The theme for March 7th will be Within the Code.

First Saturday Science is a program designed by Metropolitan State University’s Institute for Community Engagement and Scholarship (ICES) for community children of all ages to expand their exposure to science. Once a month, students are guided through an exploration of a specific field of inquiry in a hands-on laboratory.
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.
No RSVP needed; simply show up at the venue at the right time. The event is free for kids of all ages (youth under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian).
