(OMAHA)-Science fans of all ages are being invited to this year’s Nebraska Science Festival. Activities will include rocket launches, printing press tours, hands-on science experiments, an electric car display, planetarium shows, a film screening on the arts and sciences, and educational sessions on stem cell science, as well as the science of bacon, ice cream, wine and beer. More than 20 participating sites will offer activities during this year’s festival, which begins April 24th and runs through April 27th.
  
This year, the Science Festival will also have two items specifically made for the festival, a Belgian hibiscus beer called Pink Elements and an ice cream called Molecular Malt Ball Masterpiece, a cake mix ice cream infused with blue and green malt ball matter.
 
Presented by the University of Nebraska Medical Center and other sponsors, the Nebraska Science Festival is a collaboration of organizations and individuals interested in the advancement of science literacy. The Science Festival is designed to make science accessible, interactive, relevant and fun for kids and adults alike. Now in its second year, organizers intend for the festival to eventually reach across the state.
 
Space is limited for some events and may require online registration and/or a fee to participate. Visit www.nescifest.com for the full listing of participating sites and activities.
