Snakes, Goldfish, Epidemics, Rushing Streams,
and Robots Take Over
(with the help of spiders, bugs and possibly worms) 

On Wednesday, March 13, from 6 – 8 p.m. Burnette Hall on Reynolds Community College Parham Road Campus will be taken over by Science.  It’s the 15th Annual SCIENCE NIGHT, a night when the world of science comes alive on campus.

For those who have never experienced SCIENCE NIGHT, it’s a fun, hands-on, interactive science experience for everyone – with the emphasis on FUN. It’s held at the college, but it isn’t just for college students. From kindergarteners to high schoolers, and adults of all ages, there is something wild and wonderful here for all curious minds. Who doesn’t like to get up close and personal with snakes, pet a goldfish, route a stream, or play with a robot or 3-D printer?

Demonstrations will be hosted by Reynolds departments of Biology, Engineering, Geology, Physics, Honors and the Science Club. Also featured are a Goldfish Petting Zoo, a Human Boneyard, OUTBREAK – An exhibition from Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, the Math Science Innovation Center, Mattaponi Pamunkey Rivers Association, Science Matters – Community Idea Stations, Virginia Herpetological Society, the Reynolds MakerSpace, and more.

Visitors to SCIENCE NIGHT can learn how they can start their education at Reynolds. Representative from Advising, Academics, Recruitment and Specialty Programs like Honors will be on hand to explain what’s possible – in science or any other program – at Reynolds. Take a campus tour, start an application, and get help with Financial Aid. This is the perfect opportunity to ask questions and get answers from the experts . . . while petting a goldfish.

SCIENCE NIGHT is sponsored by Reynolds School of Mathematics, Science, and Engineering. It is free, fun, and open to the public. Drop by, and bring your friends . . . there is plenty of science fun for everyone.
