Second Annual Science Blitz Day coming up

The Marshall University College of Science, in partnership with West Virginia Science Adventures, will host the 2nd Annual Science Blitz Day from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 31, at the Science Building on the Huntington campus.

The Science Festival will kick off at 1 p.m. in Buskirk Field, behind the Science Building, with a Science Egg Hunt. All children and families are welcome to participate in the hunt and then go inside the Science Building for hands-on science activities. Twenty separate activities were developed by faculty and students in all scientific disciplines. Participants can see the stars in a planetarium, ride a Hovercraft, look at the world on a microscopic level, see and touch exotic animals, and much more.

The event is free and open to all, with sponsorship from the College of Science and West Virginia Science Adventures.
