Adams Elementary School Hosting Science Night on Thursday

UCSB and several companies will be on hand with exhibits and demonstrations

Adams Elementary School has a fun, family-friendly cross section of science disciplines lined up for Thursday’s Science Night.

For example, various UCSB departments will be on hand with a physics circus, earthquake generator, geology exhibit, and Research Experience and Education Facility (REEF) mobile aquarium.

There will be animal exhibits provided by the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. Art From Scrap will provide watershed resources.

Guests will be able to view the inside of a Weddle Industries racing car. FLIR will demonstrate infrared cameras, Las Cumbres Observatory will have a telescope for viewing the moon and Jupiter as well an indoor activity where children can “see with alien eyes.”

Adams Science Night will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

— Barbara Keyani is the administrative services and communications coordinator for the Santa Barbara Unified School District.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
