Super Science Saturday Returns to JCC on February 6

Where’s the hot spot for families in the midst of the North Country winter?  At Jefferson Community College (JCC)!  The College’s 9th Annual Super Science Saturday (SSS) event will take place on February 6, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Although designed for students in grades 5-8, all family members are welcome to attend. Admission is free.    

SSS is a celebration of math and science and an exploration of science careers with interactive exhibits including a giant 20-foot long, walk through colon exhibit kids won’t want to miss. Students will have the opportunity to explore and see how much fun science can be by participating in hands-on demonstrations. JCC faculty, assisted by current students, will give demonstrations in zoo keeping, chemistry, biology, geology, math, engineering and health-related careers. SSS will feature a chemistry magic show presented by James Peploski of Clarkson University and a laser and rainbow show presented by Thomas C. Altman. Several community organizations will be on hand to share career information and provide interactive activities with students. Additionally, LifeNet of New York will land a helicopter on campus at 10:00 a.m. barring any unforeseen circumstances and the weather cooperates. SSS attendees will have the opportunity to tour the helicopter until 12:00 p.m.

SSS will take place at JCC in the Jules Center, McVean Student Center, Guthrie Science Building and the John Foster Dulles Building. Concessions, parking, a campus map and programs will be available at the event.
