Cutting Edge Science event to be held at Wayne Community College

GOLDSBORO – Wayne Community College will hold an “NC Cutting Edge Science” event on Saturday, April 20 for children and their families.

The carnival-style walk-through event will be held from 10 a.m.–1 p.m. in the Wayne Learning Center (the main building on campus with the flag poles in front) with a few outdoor activities in nearby areas.

Part of the North Carolina Science Festival, this celebration of science and technology innovation will feature hands-on activity stations for participants to explore. Activities are geared toward elementary-age children, but all are welcome to participate.

Some activities include building an automaton, making heat-sensitive slime, exploring the connection between color and scent, using the power of chemistry to inflate a balloon, creating a light-up badge, and planting Christmas trees. There will also be a free raffle for children to win science kits and NC Science Festival tote bags as additional mementos.

The event is free and open to the public, and no pre-registration is required.

WCC encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing accommodations or have questions about access, contact the Accessibility Counselor at 919-739-6729.
