An annual UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center Science Expo is set to make its South Lake Tahoe debut.

The South Lake Tahoe Science Expo takes place at Lake Tahoe Community College and is designed for kids and their families. More than 40 fun and engaging science experiments will be featured at the event, according to a description from organizers.

“Many hands-on science investigations and experiments will be available for children ages 6-12 and their families,” according to the UC Davis. “The 2016 Science Expo’s activities focus on physical sciences and activities will include properties of matter, physical/chemical changes, energy and energy transfer, electricity, light, sound, forces and motion, magnetism, air pressure, friction and more. The Science Expo fosters student excitement and interest in science.”

Area schoolchildren will get a taste of the expo throughout the week. The expo will be open to the public from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, March 31.

“Science Expo includes five days of hands-on science activities for third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students from the greater Lake Tahoe and Truckee Region and an evening public event for families,” according to UC Davis. “Interest in the event has grown tremendously. Last year, we hosted between more than 1100 students during the previous five-day Science Expo event.”

Lake Tahoe Community College is located at 1 College Way in South Lake Tahoe.
