Join us as we celebrate the wonders of everyday science, where all ages can explore our world and test the boundaries of discovery. Science is integrated in virtually every aspect of our lives, which will be showcased by our own community of science, engineering, and technology innovators.
1: Science Zone Makerspace Workshops (Pre-registration required, can register at info booth - 10 -3 on every hour) 2: Forensic Workshops w/ Idaho National Laboratories Hunt for clues and see if you can figure out who was responsible for our mock explosive detonation. You will use analytical and radiochemistry techniques to look for clues similar to the way a radiochemist would if this was an actual event for National and Homeland Security. (Workshops are first come first serve on every hour, 11-3) 3: Minecraft Workshops w/ Valley of the Tetons Library (Pre-registration required, can register at info booth - 10, 12, 2, 4pm) 4: Virtual Science Academy: Lung Dissection Workshops w/ Denver Museum of Nature & Science (Workshops at 12 and 2pm) 5: Electricity and Sound Waves w/ Idaho State University Electricity and sound waves. Watch sounds waves and discover their wave and particle-like properties. What really is electricity? 6: Science of Music Workshops w/ Maddy German (Workshops are first come first serve on every hour, 11-3) 7: Become a Bee with University of Wyoming Biodiversity Institute Ever wonder what it's like to be a bee?

Coli. 17: Science of Fermentation workshops w/ Daily Roots (Workshop at 1pm) 18A: Robotics w/ BYU-Idaho Computer Science and Electrical Engineering Robotics demonstrations featuring a small R2D2, voice-command robots, and a robotic hand that can play rock paper scissors. 18B: Bird Beaks and adaptations with the Teton Raptor Center 18C: Silk Dying with Lander Art Center 19: Electronic Dissections w/ Teton Science School 20: 3D printing w/ JH High School Fablab 21: 3D Modeling w/ Idaho Museum of Natural History Watch museum specimens come to life and learn how they are catalogued with the help of 3D modeling and augmented reality. There will be 2, 3-D scanners, 3-D printed objects, objects to scan, 3 computers/tablets to show students 3-D models and a small scale Augmented Reality demo. The Jackson Hole High School FabLab's 3D printer will be available, so you can print and take home your own specimen! 22A: Organ Dissection Workshops w/ St. John’s Medical Center (Pre-registration required, can register at info booth - 10:30-3:30 on every hour) 22B: Gross Science Under the Microscope w/ St. John’s Medical Center Gross science under the microscopes and leading dissection workshops. 23: Fossil Digging w/ Ulrich Fossils Dig a fossil out of Wyoming rock. 24: Dinosaur Digging w/ Wyoming Dinosaur Center The kids will be able to pour plaster into various molds where they can take home a cast of a fossil. 25: Chemistry w/ JH Children’s Museum Scott Kitchen will be doing explorations with with acids and bases an ph. 26: Wildlife Quiz w/ Grand Teton Association Wildlife knowledge quiz and will giveaway some of wildlife themed products as prizes. 27: Alternative Energy Fuel Sources Workshops w/ Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities (Workshops at 11, 12, 1, 2pm) Build solar energy cars and race them on the sidewalk! 28: Become a Bighorn Sheep w/ Natural Bighorn Sheep Center Bighorn Sheep Resource Game: Participants become bighorn sheep and seek out different elements of habitat (colored game pieces) in a playing space with environmental variation/challenges included-good moving activity which can be varied per age group. It's most suited for field/outdoor space or a large enough indoor floor area, with oversight of activity by us. Wildlife hide, track, and scat guiding games. Also hands-on bighorn hides, horns, skulls, tracking collar, hooves, etc. 29: Life of Trees w/ Wyoming Project Learning Tree Explore the role of trees and plants in our world. 30: Archaeology Dig w/ WY State Archaeology/Mercill Archaeology Center 31: Planetarium & Stargazing w/ Wyoming Stargazing (Workshops are first come first serve on every hour, 11-3) Inflatable planetarium in which we can show you the motion of the stars throughout the night, the constellations, and the relative sizes of the planets. We can bring the planetarium to any large indoor space (16 ft high ceilings and 20’x20′ of floor space). 32: Wildlife Crossings Obstacle Course w/ JH Conservation Alliance 33: Speed Limits w/ WY Department of Transportation Science and technology behind speed limits. 34: Tic Track Toe w/ Green River Outreach for Wilderness Visitors can play "Tic Track Toe" in the sandbox or stamp track replicas in paint to make a take-home track poster. 35: Robots w/ JH High School Robotics: Robobroncs 36: Recycling w/ Teton County Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling 37: Wyoming Wildlife Identification w/ Wyoming Game and Fish Think you know your wildlife?
