On Saturday, April 22, UNCG’s campus was transformed into a playground for science.

Drawing an estimated crowd of nearly 5,000 on a beautiful spring day, the third annual UNCG Science Everywhere festival provided young people, parents and members of the community with opportunities to experience science in new and exciting ways.

With 70 hands-on activities throughout campus – from cyanotype blueprints to flash-freezing tennis balls – there was truly something for everyone.

Jenna Buckley and her 9-year-old daughter, Maeve, enjoyed exploring the variety of activities throughout UNCG’s campus.

“This was our first time, and I was really impressed,” said Buckley. Maeve agreed. “The (cyanotype) blueprint was really cool.”
