The UAF College of Natural Science and Mathematics will host its annual Science Potpourri Saturday, April 11 from noon - 5 p.m. in the Reichardt Building on the University of Alaska Fairbanks campus.

The popular science event will feature new activities and longtime favorites. Participants of all ages can slice a rock in two, create a flood in a miniature Monopoly town, learn to make slime, investigate mystery beads and watch a robot in action.

The event started out as KUAC's Family Science Day in the Wood Center. Once it moved to the Reichardt Building, where departments have easy access to working labs, it grew into an event that draws hundreds of people each year.

Science Potpourri is free and open to the public. Free parking is available behind the Reichardt Building.
