A Night of Science: Experience a Science Extravaganza at Ohlone College - Press Release, Office of College Advancement
Fremont, CA — Ohlone College’s Night of Science & More opens a window into the world of science and its many interesting aspects, leading young minds to fulfilling education pathways and fast-growing career opportunities. The entire community is invited to this showcase on Saturday, October 7, that will expose the fun, wonderful power of science with hands-on activities and demonstrations from Ohlone students and professors. This free event is for the whole family to experience together.
Enjoy engineering demonstrations, rocket launches and making slime. Gaze at the stars through high-powered telescopes and learn about our solar system. Watch drones fly, experience virtual reality, and see how 3D printing can create circuitry you wear on your clothes. There will be amazing chemistry experiments, artificial intelligence demonstrations, hands-on use of digital microscopes, and a “fishy” way to farm using aquaponics. Guinness World Record Holder, John Collins, aka “The Paper Airplane Guy,” will demonstrate a variety of aerodynamic principles: from lift, drag, and angle, to the crazy cool secret of the World Record Paper Airplane.
Besides all the fun, there will be plenty of other learning opportunities as well, including workshops about computer forensics, computer programing, and health sciences demonstrations (such as checking vital signs, digestive processes and more).
Careers in science will be highlighted along with presentations and resources from many of the science programs at Ohlone College. “This event makes all of the wonder, excitement, and possibilities of science available for everyone to explore, experiment, and engage,” said Renee Wong Gonzales, Student Activities Coordinator.
Families and friends will enjoy a spectacular evening filled with scientific demonstrations and hands-on activities for all ages.
