Grand Valley State University is holding Super Science Saturday in conjunction with the International Year of Chemistry 2011 and Grand Valley’s 50th anniversary.

Every lab and classroom in Padnos Hall (Allendale Campus) will be filled with hands-on science activities so students, parents, teachers and community members can explore and learn how chemistry affects everyday life. Grand Valley science faculty and guest presenters will show how chemistry connects with biology, geology, physics, health science, engineering, history, art and more.
