Make a date for free family fun and get up-close and personal with the many wonders of science and technology at this annual spring event sponsored by the Texas A&M Department of Physics and Astronomy in conjunction with the Texas A&M Department of Aerospace Engineering. Unleash your inner scientist aboard a square-wheeled bicycle or try your hand at generating electricity and shooting balloons with lasers — three of the more than 100 exciting, interactive experiments that will be on display from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the George P. Mitchell Physics Buildings on the Texas A&M University campus. No fees or tickets are required for the free event, which will feature three fantastic bubble shows at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. by internationally acclaimed bubble artist Tom Noddy, as well as lectures at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. by NASA aerospace engineer George James and Nobel Prize winners Dudley Herschbach and David Lee. The day will conclude with a 4 p.m. public lecture by internationally recognized Harvard University astronomer and author Robert Kirshner about the accelerating universe.
