Come join us for Science Saturdays!
We are extending Science Saturdays for 4 more weeks! On April 13, 20, 27 join us at ORAU’s Pollard Technology Conference Center for Science Saturdays presentations. Like the first 6 Science Saturdays, enjoy hands-on activities related to the presentation by an ORNL scientist! On Saturday, May 4, Science Saturdays will end with a tour of Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
If you are already registered for any of the Science Saturdays, we will automatically register you for the April Science Saturdays. If you CANNOT attend one or more of the April sessions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
To register for the May 4 tour of ORNL, you may sign-up at the Science Saturdays on March 23 and April 13 or email us at email@example.com. Space is limited, so you will want to sign-up earlier rather than later! Parents and siblings are invited based on available space. Priority will be given to Science Saturdays students. If you email your sign-up, please include your first and last name, and the country in which you hold citizenship, including the same information for parents and siblings who wish to attend. The deadline to sign-up for the tour is April 13!
If you are new to Science Saturdays, you may sign-up for the tour on May 4 by following the above directions. Additional information will be requested by a follow-up email from us.
If you are new to Science Saturdays and want to attend the March 23 or April 13, 20, or 27 Saturdays, please register online by going to Science Saturdays Online Registration.
