The Nebraska Science Festival (www.nescifest.com) returns this spring with a myriad of science and technology-related activities for all ages scheduled throughout the month of April.
Launched in 2013 by the University of Nebraska Medical Center, the statewide festival allows participants to discover the importance of science and how it is intertwined in their daily lives. Activities are interactive, relevant, and fun for kids and adults.
Activities will be promoted on the Nebraska Science Festival website, as well as on Twitter and Facebook (@NESciFest). Events are continually being added, so visit often for updates or to see if reservations or tickets are required.
