Science Potpourri is a UAF tradition! For more than 20 years, the free community event has entertained and inspired the Fairbanks community with science shows, make-and-take-home activities, demos and lots of fun for all ages.
From 2012-2015, our Education department held Nanotechnology activities in collaboration with Research Assistant Professors Shiva and Nilima Hullavarad (INE). In 2016, we celebrated National DNA Day in collaboration with UAMN Genomic Resources and the Institute of Arctic Biology.
UAMN Education & Public Programs is part of the NISE Network.
Look for us at local community events: the Fairbanks Families Partnership Health Fair in September, Mush for Kids in April, and others!
