Kids and parents will watch interactive sessions presented by renowned research scientists and participate in hands-on activities led by undergraduate students and VT faculty/staff. Each day's events will center on common themes related to everyday life. The Virtual Program will be offered on the same dates as the In-Person program. The interactive sessions will be live-streamed via zoom and materials for hands-on activities will be mailed home to each Virtual participant.
Registration opens Oct. 17th. Please register for either the In-Person Program (Registration fee of $75) OR the Virtual Program ($50). Scholarships are available. Please see- https://ktu.fralinlifesci.vt.edu/sign-up.html
