The Florida Integrated Science Center's 10th Annual Open House and Earth Science Day for Fourth Graders
You can learn how scientists monitor the daily life of turtles and sturgeons, measure how hurricanes rearrange our coastlines, keep track of where water goes and why flooding occurs, monitor manatee movements, predict volcanic eruptions, and how we use that information to help us predict future changes.
The USGS will host more than 40 interactive booths that highlight USGS science activities and also those of many of our community partners.
The event will take place on two days at the Florida Integrated Science Center St. Petersburg Office.
The first day is "Open House for the General Public and Educators," Wednesday, November 5, 2008, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. A special exhibit will feature free educational resources.
The "Annual Earth Science Day for Fourth Graders" will take place Thursday, November 6, 2008, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
