Visitors to campus during Family Weekend were treated to a carnival-style Science EXPO on Saturday, Sept. 23rd.  The event was a collaboration between the College of Arts & Sciences and the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center’s Impacts Program.  The program trains scientists to communicate effectively with the general public.  Faculty from the departments of Biology and Geography & Geology were joined by scientists from Chapel Hill and Fayetteville Technical Community College, reptiles from the North Carolina Aquarium, and an educational display from the Nature Conservancy’s Sandhills office. The Art Education Club led science themed arts and craft activities, while sno-cones kept the heat at bay.
