Kids Get Hands-On Experience At Science Extravaganza

Kids in Stevens Point had a chance to put on their thinking caps and get hands-on experience learning about science on Saturday at the 10th Annual Science Extravaganza. Stevens Point FFA and UWSP Delta Kappa Pi hosted the event that attracted more than 400 people.

Balloon magic, tie die chemistry, and shaving cream color were just some of the science experiments on display at SPASH. The tables were turned as 7th through 12th graders became teachers, showing off their science know-how to the younger generation. Their goal was to get kids interested in science.

"Science is fun. Science is cool. There's a lot of things that we do here that students don't even realize are true science experiments," said Stevens Point School District's Agriculture Instructor and FFA Advior, Ione Hausler.

Proceeds will go to Stevens Point FFA, KDP and the Never Forgotten Honor Flight.
