Science Saturdays

Every month, PAROC hosts a FREE event where the community can come spend an hour learning about science and doing hands-on activities. Each month is a new theme so there is something for everyone! ALL ages are welcome, caregivers must attend with children. Sign up for our Science Saturdays below!

Planet Power

February 11th, 10 AM - 11 AM

Join us as we learn about energy! We will be talking about where we get our energy, the differences between renewable and nonrenewable energy, and what electricity even is. We will then test our abilities by making our own circuits out of different materials!

 

Free and open to all ages, caregivers must attend with children. Registration required, limited to the first 20 participants who sign up.

Native Plant Sale

May 6th, 10 AM - 12 PM

Join us as we learn about the benefits of using native plants in our gardens and landscapes! We will provide information on the different plants and options for your space, and how these native plants will add beauty and habitat for birds, pollinators, and more!

 

The Kansas Grassland Heritage Foundation will be sharing their knowledge followed by a native plant sale at the PAROC. We will also provide an update about the new “Campus Prairie” project taking place north of the PAROC!
