Today is the first day of the ninth annual Nebraska Science Festival -- presented by UNMC -- which runs all month long. The festival includes science- and technology-related activities available online or in small, socially distanced group settings.
The 2021 Nebraska SciFest includes something for every age and interest. Participants can learn about the weather, participate in a citywide clean-up, enjoy a statewide scavenger hunt and discover careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Public health measures will be followed for all in-person activities. View the entire festival schedule (with details and registration links) online.
