SKy Science Festival returns April 23
- Tuesday, April 5th, 2022
Celebrate curiosity, questions and all that is science from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 23 at Bowling Green’s Circus Square Park.
Postponed due to the pandemic in 2020 and 2021, the 2022 SKy Science Festival Expo Day has returned as a springtime carnival, scheduled around Earth Day and Arbor Day. SKy Science Festival’s 2022 Expo Day is free and open to all.
“This year’s Expo Day should be the best yet,” Ronn Kistler, secretary on the board of directors for SKy Science Festival, Inc., said. “Anyone who came to the celebrations of 2015 through 2019 will be both thrilled to recognize old favorites returning and amazed at the fantastic new opportunities for this year.”
Attendees at this year’s Expo Day will have the opportunity to delve into the human brain and the nature of how we know what we know at various Brain Awareness activity stations sponsored by the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives.
Dozens of other exhibitors will be sharing their engaging activities, challenges, exhibits and games. Rangers from Mammoth Cave National Park, amateur astronomers from WKU’s Hardin Planetarium, and students of science from schools throughout southcentral Kentucky will be sharing activities to engage the young and the young at heart. Participants can explore electricity with the Warren Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation (WRECC), investigate how heat gets measured by the infra-red imaging technology shared by the Kentucky Thermal Institute, and experience simulations of home fires with the Bowling Green Fire Department.
The 2022 Expo Day will feature a variety of music. Steel pan drums will be playing all day in front of the Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center (SKyPAC). David Foster and Masako Jeffers will perform science-related songs from the stage. The instruments played by WKU’s Chinese Music Club will be demonstrated, and the WKU Society of Physics Students will help attendees create their own slide oboes from plastic straws.
