Adventures at the Arizona SciTech Festival: Hacking and Crafting!

The Arizona SciTech Festival is in full swing, which means that for the next two months, we're in for over 500 science related events throughout the state of Arizona! Events during the SciTech Festival include science experiments and activity days, robots and rockets, lecture series, open houses at ASU and various state parks, and all sorts of science throughout the Valley!

We decided to kick off our SciTech adventures at one of our favorite places in Phoenix, the Burton Barr branch of the Phoenix Public Library! We showed up on Wednesday to check out their Paper Engineering workshops.

Getting Wild With Science at the Phoenix Zoo!

Let's take a behind the scenes look at the Phoenix Zoo!

Did you know that there is a place where your kids can learn about animals, how to take care of them, and get a behind the scenes look at the life of a zookeeper? The Phoenix Zoo offers an incredible lineup of classes for kids of all ages, where they can learn about veterinary practices, animal relationships and behavior, adaptations and bio-mimicry, habitats and conservation, and so much more!

With their Keeper for A Day, Nature Explorers, Breakfast with the Animals, and their Zoology classes for kids, the Phoenix Zoo is a wonderful place to for animal science. Not only can your kids learn directly from the people who take care of them, but they can also get some exclusive behind the scenes experiences with the animals themselves!
