Science Sunday Set for April 7 at Regis University

March 28, 2019

DENVER — The entire family will find something to engage their interest at the fourth-annual Science Sunday held 1 to 4 p.m., April 7 at Regis University’s Northwest Denver Campus. The free event will fill the Pomponio Science Building with hands-on activities geared toward elementary and middle-school students.

“The secret is out! Science Sunday is an event that our community looks forward to every year,” said event organizer Quyen Hart, an associate professor of physics and astronomy. “The stars of our event are the Regis college students, who run all the STEM activities. They get our visitors excited about learning science and kids walk away with memorable learning experiences.”

The many science stations are planned to engage children in neuroscience, biology, astronomy, chemistry and physics. For example, kids will learn about the planets while making solar-system bracelets, learn about the five senses in the neuroscience department, and forces and collisions in the physics lab.

Kids will have a “STEM passport” to fill out and exchange for a free drawstring bag, filled with goodies (while supplies last).

Weather permitting, telescopes will be placed on the campus’ Boettcher Commons for observing the sun through safety lenses.

Stop by the “Ask a Scientist” booth and chat with Regis faculty about particle physics, genetics, chemical reactions, black holes and more. 

Science Sunday is supported by the University’s Regis College, Marketing and Communications and several campus student groups.
