Stay Curious weekend schedule:

Energize It! Demonstration: 11:15 a.m. Saturday and 1:15 p.m. Sunday

Thermal, chemical, potential, kinetic, oh my! Energy is all around us as we investigate how energy can transform in a variety of ways, sometimes with explosive results!

NEORSD Wonders of Water hands-on workshop: noon Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday

Learn what’s lurking in your water that you can’t see or smell, use chemistry and technology to see the unseen, and use your imagination to engineer a robotic micro-organism that is yours to keep.

BASF Kids’ Lab hands-on activity: “pHun Factor”: 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday

Get hands-on and explore the amazing colors that indicate if something is an acid or a base.

Lift Off! Big Science Show: 2:15 p.m. Saturday and 3:15 p.m. Sunday

Before you can launch into outer space, you must first get off the ground. Things go up and come down, sometimes with a bang, in this high energy demonstration.
