MontGuide: MSU hosting Science Saturdays

BOZEMAN - Montana State University scientists and students are preparing to host the first of five MSU Science Saturdays for youth.

The first event takes place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday in Studio 1080, the Burns Technology Center's interactive multimedia center in the atrium of the EPS Building. The topic is viruses, which MSU scientists are studying in Yellowstone National Park and other extreme environments.

MSU Science Saturdays will be held monthly from November through March in Studio 1080, featuring topics such as computers and hydrogen fuels. The Dec. 13 topic is magnetism.

The events are designed for ages 10-15, but younger kids may attend if accompanied by a parent. Everyone will participate in hands-on activities and learn about new research and technology.

Attendees will also get MSU SciPass passports, which are stamped after completing activities and can be used at future SciSat events.

Science Saturdays are sponsored by MSU's Center for Bio-Inspired NanoMaterials, MSU Extended University and the Undergraduate Chemistry Club.

No registration is required; however, kids who do pre-register will receive a free MSU Science Saturdays prize.

For information, a map and to register, go to or call 406-994-6550.
