Putnam Science fair

Saturday Afternoon, I will be at the Garbage Garage Booth at the Putnam School of Art and ScienceScience Carnival from 11-3:00. We will be making recycled paper hats.

Now in its fifth year, the science carnival features booths with activities and displays by prominent local, state and federal organizations including Bird Olympics by Master Naturalists; the Hewlett Packard Boo Crew; Rocky Mountain Raptor Program; the Colorado State University Little Shop of Physics; CSU BSPM and Biology Departments; and the U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station. In addition, the carnival will offer numerous hands-on fun and educational activities for children of all ages including live animals, science-themed games, food and prizes.

Visitors may also participate in a silent auction for various themed baskets assembled by students.

Admission is $2 per person and includes full access to all activities (food not included); children 5 and under are free.

Proceeds from the event will help send Putnam's fifth-graders to ECO week in the fall. Eighty percent of Putnam's students qualify for the Free and Reduced Lunch program, making raising funds to assist students to attend ECO week critical. The Science Carnival provides a big boost to those efforts.

For more information, call Wendy Mosher, (970) 488-7744.
