The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Morehead Planetarium and Science Center is producing the North Carolina Science Festival, a multi-day celebration showcasing science and technology April 5 – 21, 2013. To get all school students involved, they are encouraging North Carolinians to participate in the first-ever statewide Experi-Minute.
Experi-Minute is inspired by Kannapolis City Schools’ “Moment of Science” held during the 2012 North Carolina Science Festival. All students throughout the district participated in a science-related activity at the same time, even if they weren’t in a science class at the time.
On Friday, April 12, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. join your fellow teachers in a science activity. The possibilities are endless. Here are a few ideas.
Make sure to register your Experi-Minute with the Festival so they know that you’re participating! Just go to the Festival’s “Host an Event” section and enter your information. Indicate in the description that this is an “Experi-Minute” event. If you want to make your “Experi-Minute” a public event, put that in the description, too, and they’ll help promote your “Experi-Minute” through the Festival’s website.
