Day of science and math for kids at MiraCosta

OCEANSIDE — MiraCosta College will host a free hands-on Math and Science Fair from 10 a.m. to noon May 6 for community members and children, on the central lawn near the clock tower at MiraCosta College, 1 Barnard Drive. The fair will include activities for elementary and middle school children and learning booths hosted by MiraCosta Service Learning students.
“The goal is to promote MiraCosta as a community resource, provide outreach to families who may not view higher education as an option, and engage children in stimulating math and science activities,” MiraCosta College Service Learning Coordinator Carol Wilkinson said. “Last year we had 15 different disciplines represented and the activities were amazing. Children had the opportunity to launch Alka Seltzer rockets, look through giant telescopes, make slime, examine the human brain and so much more.”
Free parking is available in all student lots the day of the event. For additional information, contact Wilkinson at (760) 795-6616 or cwilkinson@miracosta.edu.
