|Explore the ‘Science Side of Heaven’ at the free UNC Science Expo on Sept. 25|
|Wednesday, September 15, 2010|
Rappers and race cars will offer a fresh look at science on Sept. 25 during the first celebration of its kind on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The free UNC Science Expo runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is presented by Morehead Planetarium and Science Center as part of the North Carolina Science Festival.
A small sampling of the day’s activities includes:
Most of the hands-on activities will take place outdoors on McCorkle Place, between Franklin Street and the Old Well, and around Kenan Music Building and Hill Hall. The Science Stage shows will take place at the west entrance of the planetarium, while the tours and talks by faculty experts are centered in the buildings of the Science Complex.
Free parking is available on campus, and paid parking is available at the Rams Head lot or in the Town of Chapel Hill deck on Rosemary Street. The expo will take place rain or shine. In the event of rain, check www.moreheadplanetarium.org that morning for a revised map.
