THE EVENT ITSELF: Big Sky High School will offer a voyage into the mystifying principles of anatomy, biology, chemistry and physics as high school students share their passion and intrigue for the laws of science with elementary and middle school students at the school’s. The event is an informal event where children and families can move through the science arena at their own pace. Most booths will be organized and provided by Big Sky High School students. Through demonstrations, displays and hands on activities, young students will be inspired and excited about the possibilities of learning more about science as they progress from elementary to middle school to high school and perhaps, even college. More than 80 different stations will offer opportunities for students to visit with “experts” and experience such phenomenon as flaming gummy bears, dissections, smoke ring cannon, Velcro wall, and edible bugs. New to the event this year is a heart expo featuring several health heart demonstrations and a tie-dying station with T-shirts.
