Summer with ACCHaoS – Surfin’ Some Science!

We’ve had a good summer so far – we’ve shared science with the folks at the Willie Mae Kirk branch of the Austin Public Library, the Westbank Community Library, and with Astro Camp!  Not too bad for summer vacation!

ACCHaoS at Science Rocks!

Science Rocks!  Willie Mae Kirk Branch – Austin Public Library

June 7, 2013

There was an incredible turnout for Science Rocks! at the library.  We lost count of how many kids, parents, and other adults showed up – there were lots and lots of people of all ages! The library did an awesome job putting on a fantastic science day!

What can we say – we love libraries!   We had a good time being part of Westbank Community Library’s summer hands-on series.

Three exhibits at once!

We visited Astro Camp last year, and we were excited to visit there again this year.   The folk from Austin Planetarium and Starry Skies Austin put on fabulous  one week camps for kids each summer, complete with lots of science activities and of course, their mobile planetarium, the Discovery Dome.  The campers were definitely scientists in the making – they asked lots of good questions, and made some great observations.

Summer is winding down, but ACCHaoS is gearing up for another year of science fun!  Our schedule is really filling up, so if you would like for us to visit your school this year, drop us a quick email at ACChandsonscience@gmail.com or visit our online request form at http://www.austincc.edu/physics/acchaos/request.html

Enjoy the rest of the summer, and stay cool!
