UND Faculty, Students To Take Part In Annual ‘Super Science Day’ On Earth Day, April 22

A number of University of North Dakota faculty members and students are pitching in to support Dakota Science Center with its annual “Super Science Day” on Sunday, April 22 – Earth Day — at Fido Purpur Arena in Grand Forks.

This free, family event features hands-on science activities and informational exhibits for children in grades 1-6.  Science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM) activities are provided by UND faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, student organizations, government agencies, business and adult volunteers.  This event is held for families with children who enjoy hands-on activities designed to spark an interest in the sciences.

Super Science Day is part of National Environmental Education Week.  Grand Forks residents will be able to bring to the event ink cartridges, laser cartridges, laptops, cell phones, PDAs, iPods, DVD movies, video consoles and games, digital cameras, and other electronics for proper recycling.  The Dakota Science Center uses the “Cartridges for Kids” program to raise money for hands-on science activities in our community.

Also, a “GreenDisk” box will be available for residents to recycle electronic media such as videos, cassettes, computer discs, cd’s and DVD’s.  The GreenDisk Company began on Earth Day in 1993 to provide a secure way to dispose of intellectual property in an environmentally responsible manner.
