Experience the Weirdness at Fermilab’s Popular ‘Wonders of Science’ Show

Every year a team of science teachers calling themselves Weird Science takes the stage of Ramsey Auditorium at Fermilab and, for an hour or so, puts on a deliriously entertaining and educational show called Wonders of Science.

This show is recommended for families with children ages 7 to 12, and will have those children gazing in wide-eyed wonder at the eye-popping experiments and demonstrations, and leaving with a science kit for their own experiments at home. Tickets are available online.
