A Rockville tradition returns Sunday, April 23 as Montgomery College hosts the 32nd annual Rockville Science Day.
The free event, from noon-5 p.m. at the college’s Rockville campus, 51 Mannakee St., offers an opportunity to experience hands-on science- and technology-related exhibits, activities, games and demonstrations from over 70 local organizations and businesses.
Activities and exhibits include building and launching rockets, telescopes, robots, backyard wildlife, microscopes, snakes, stream science, Civil War medical practice, coding challenges, math puzzles, chemistry in action, electric vehicles, quadcopters, archaeology mini-digs, 3-D printing, brain games, and more.
Student Service Learning hours are available for students 16 and older who help with setup Saturday and with exhibits Sunday. To register an exhibit, offer to volunteer or learn more, visit www.rockvillesciencecenter.org/rscd.
Can’t Wait for Science Day?
The Rockville Science Center sponsors online science presentations the second and third Tuesday of every month. For something a bit more hands-on, the center hosts classes and engaging activities, such as a family chess club. Open discussion periods are held Thursday evenings and STEM Activities Day is the last Saturday of each month. Activities are held in the center’s storefront at 36C Maryland Ave. and in the Makerspace at Rockville Memorial Library, 21 Maryland Ave. RSC also offers spring break and summer classes at its Rockville Town Square locations and local schools.
RSC is a nonprofit supported by the generous donations of its members and sponsors, including the City of Rockville. Learn more at www.rockvillesciencecenter.org.
