Are you interested in exploring more about the faith/science relationship? If so, you will want to participate in the NESciFest events coming up in April. ABC News’, Ginger Zee, headlines this year’s festival.
The Science Festival is designed to make science accessible, interactive, relevant and fun for kids and adults alike. Examples of some of the offerings include activities at Morrill Hall, Lincoln Children’s Museum, and Lincoln Children’s Zoo. Most activities are offered for the price of regular admission. In addition to Lincoln locations, science programs are available in Omaha, Ashland, Bellevue, Fremont and other towns around the state. Some of these charge no admission or admit children for free. For a complete listing of events, check the website at http://www.nescifest.com/schedule/ or on Facebook at NE SciFest. New activities continue to be added and posted to the Facebook page.
The Nebraska Science Festival began in 2013 as an initiative of the University of Nebraska Medical Center, which continues to administer the festival with the assistance of a number of organizations and individuals interested in the advancement of science literacy.
