BOZEMAN – Young future scientists got to observe and learn from Montana State administrators and students at Science Day.

Kids from Hyalite, Whittier, and Irving elementary schools had the opportunity to learn from 30 different science and tech programs from across the university. MSU staff also had the opportunity to share their knowledge and research with the young minds.

Science Day is a two-part event. The students from the three schools had their chance to explore the event Thursday morning, while the expo was open and free to the public later in the day.

Suzi Taylor, who works in academic technology and outreach for University helped organize the event.

“A couple of the activities that we have, we’re a part of a NASA project that flies kites and collects remote sensing data,” Taylor said. “So we have kids that are making miniature kites using plans from NASA; that’s pretty cool!”
