Family Sci-Fest at Children's Museum Tucson

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

There are a lot of events happening all around Tucson this weekend, but if you've got a bit of an investigative mind, there's some science waiting for you and your family tomorrow.

Saturday is Family Sci-Fest at Children's Museum Tucson. 

Free admission all day and activities from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Tomorrow many will be seeing and participating as a ‘mad' scientist conducts his experiments.  There will be examples of rockets, telescopes, liquid nitrogen.  The event is geared toward school age children, but there should be a little something for everyone in the family to enjoy.  The idea is to get children interested in ‘STEM', as well as offer them the opportunity to understand science by developing the ability to reason, question and predict how something will happen.

One another note tomorrow the Children's Museum Tucson will be joining many others across the country in collecting donations to help build a children's museum in Newtown, Connecticut.  Plans for the Connecticut museum have been in the works for months, and tomorrow Tucson is reaching out to help.  Donations can be made at the event tomorrow.

    Let’s give a shout out and a little praise, with reservations, for the way the Teamsters and Sun Tran management pulled together to avoid another long, frustrating bus strike?  After all, One of the things we have NOT had to report on recently is a long, drawn out bus strike.

    "I try not to worry about things I can't do something about," Bill Gibson said. He is likely to lose his health care coverage if the present Senate alternative passes, along with an estimated 22 to 32 million others.
