Super Science Saturday Dates and Topics
Sept. 9th – Chytrid Testing
We are going to do a citizen science project to collect data about the chytrid fungus, which has been spreading through amphibian populations throughout the United States with devastating effects. Chytrid affects frogs, toads and salamanders, but much needs to be learned about the disease, how it spreads and which species are most susceptible. This is where scientists need you to help!
For this session, we meet at the center for a short introduction before caravanning in your own vehicles to Bader Park (near Chapman). Here we hope to find toads and frogs to sample along the Platte River.
Oct. 21st -Halloween Fun!

After the race from 11:00-1:00 come to the center for hot dogs, smores, spookey science labs, costume parade and face painting. Then comes more fun with a Scientist coming at 1:30 -3:30 to talk about SPIDERS!!!
