Science Saturday: KMUW's Science Friday Fundraiser


Science Friday has been sharing the joys of science with public radio listeners for 25 years. Ira Flatow and the rest of the SciFri crew produce a live show on the road just a few times each year, and this time they're coming to us.

This evening of fun will feature food, beverages, entertainment... and science! Consider it an adult science fair, with libations!

  • Meet the man who uncovered the smallest T. rex in the world, and see the dinosaur's skull.
  • See how virtual reality is used to better understand the brain. 
  • Peer through layers of Kansas earth and learn the latest about fracking. 
  • Get hands-on with a wind turbine and see the inner workings of a solar panel.
  • Learn about the upcoming total solar eclipse from Exploration Place's head educator, Traci Kallhoff.
  • Play virtual reality game simulators provided by our friends at Cybertron PC.
  • Get your picture taken with a friendly robot.

A special talk by Charles Bergquist, Science Friday's Director, caps off the evening. Bergquist will share experiences from his 20+ years at Science Friday, and give a sneak preview of what's in store for Science Friday Live in September.
