LSU Pete Maravich Assembly Center (PMAC)
Super Science Saturday (SSS) is a free Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education event for students in kindergarten to 12th grade, parents, and anyone interested in seeing science in action. SSS is sponsored by LSU Chemistry, the Baton Rouge local section of the American Chemical Society (ACS), and LSU Athletics.
SSS is held each Fall, usually around National Chemistry Week. This year there will be 19 stations with hands-on demonstrations and activities to engage students and adults alike. Each K-12 student that attends is given a Passport at the check-in area that has blocks for each of the activity stations. When the student visits the station and participates in the activities the Passport is stamped. After visiting all the activity stations located around the concourse level of the PMAC they will receive some small gifts at the check-out area. Many regional K-12 teachers give students with a fully-stamped Passport some bonus points for attending and learning some science – so students should hang on to their Passports if that is the case.
The event is free, but we are collecting non-perishable food items (and/or monetary donations) for the Baton Rouge Food Bank.
The organizer of the event is Prof. George Stanley (LSU Chemistry, phone: 225-578-3471, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org). Please contact him for more information or questions about Super Science Saturday. Information is also posted on the LSU Chemistry website.
