Science Nights at American Science & Surplus in Chicago

August 29, 2012 10:15:43 AM PDT
NASA's latest mission to Mars has sparked renewed interest in science. For years, American Science & Surplus has hosted numerous free, public star parties and science demonstrations.

These events are scheduled throughout the year and offer a chance for everyone to view the skies through professional quality optics and receive technical assistance with their own telescopes. Another event is coming up Friday night. Science Nights makes science and learning fun. While it's geared towards children, all are welcome and encouraged to participate. There is a microscope workshop with instructions for making and staining slides and viewing live organisms. Professional level telescopes are set up outside for public use.

Science Night: Friday Aug. 31 6pm-10pm
