Sciencepalooza: Science fun for everyone

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- Computerized turtle races, demonstrations with 3D printers, and virtual reality experiences were just some of the events featured at Holy Innocents' Episcopal School's (HIES) Sciencepalooza April 21.

The 3-year-old event, designed to kindle an interest in science careers and hobbies among Upper-Schoolers, included demonstrations this year on: Crime Scene Investigation techniques involving blood spatter and fingerprinting; the science of baseball; and rocket-launching. Students rotated through the presentations, hands-on activities, and booths, following their own interests.

 “As the founder of Science for Everyone, there's no better feeling than to watch a child's mind light up as a result of witnessing or partaking in, the wondrous fabric that science weaves across our universe,” said Michael Green, a guest speaker and the founder of Science for Everyone (an interactive science and technology company committed to increasing students’ math and science interests).

Green entertained students with intriguing experiments such as making a big dill pickle glow in the dark, teaching students to multiply faster than a calculator, and  expanding a bar of Ivory soap to the size of a volleyball.

This year's event was coordinated by HIES science teacher Amanda Love.
