It’s a whole barn full of science fun this weekend on Ithaca’s east hill! Cornell University’s Big Red barn is the place and Saturday afternoon is the time.
Stations in this year’s edition of the popular annual Kids’ Science Day include an Astronomy Station (exoplanets and infrared camera), Bug Zoo, Build a Brain Workshop, From Floating to Submerging, History of Science Bookmark Station, Magic of Magnets, Silly Putty Lab, Solving Crime One Print at a Time, Tasty Science: Looking at Strawberry DNA, The Hidden World of Plants (seed planting and microscope viewing), and Spring has Sprung: The World of Flowers.
Kids’ Science Day, from 1:30-4:30pm on Saturday, April 30, is free and open to the public. The Big Red Barn is between Andrew Dickson White House and Bailey Hall.
Parking is available nearby in lots off Tower Road or in Cornell’s parking garage on Hoy Road, with handicap spaces near Bailey and Malott Halls off Garden Avenue. (Watch out for lots and spaces that are restricted even on weekends.)
