During the Tucson Festival of Books, March 2 & 3, 2019, Old Pueblo Archaeology Center will have a free science and activity station at Science City, located at the University of Arizona Mall (1601 E. University Blvd, Tucson), 9:30 – 5:30 each day. Stop by Old Pueblo’s outreach tables at the “Science of Everyday Life” neighborhood. Enjoy demonstrations of flintknapping (flaked-stone tool making) and other hands-on activities including making your own petroglyphs. Science City is huge (it’s called a city for a reason), spanning a third of the Tucson Festival of Books footprint, and within its boundaries are six neighborhoods to explore – Science of Everyday Life, Science in Art, Science of Food, Science of the Natural World, Science of Tomorrow, and Science of You. Co-hosted by The University of Arizona’s College of Science and BIO5 Institute, Science City features more than 90 hands-on activities, demonstrations, informative talks, author panels, book signings, and presentations for all ages. There’s a lot to do and see there in addition to visiting Old Pueblo’s outreach and demonstration area in the Science of Everyday Life neighborhood!
No reservations are needed. For more information about Old Pueblo’s involvement in Science City (or to assist as a volunteer!) contact Old Pueblo at 520-798-1201 or info@oldpueblo.org.
