Did you figure out why they were all featured together?

These are five of the locations that are hosting at least one event for the Nebraska Science Festival.  Over fifty science related events are taking place across Nebraska over the next nine days.  Although many of them are focused in the metro areas, central and Northeast Nebraska areas are also represented.

Not only are activities happening during the day, but a few evening Planetarium events are also taking place.  The best thing about these events as that almost all age groups will enjoy certain aspects of this great festival.  From hands-on forest activities to lectures by renowned scientist, you have your pick of all sorts of activities.

For more information or to see the complete schedule, please visit their site.  Events start tomorrow (4-10) and continue through the following Saturday (4-18).  If you do happen to go, I would enjoy seeing your pictures if you could share your fun shots on my Odyssey Through Nebraska Facebook page.  Thanks!
