Flagstaff Festival of Science: Making Waves! Sept. 21 – 30, 2012
Open House—Field Trip—Science in the Park—Lecture Series—In School Presentation
Whether it’s through water, sound or discovery, the 2012 Flagstaff Festival of Science is Making Waves! Flagstaff’s 23rd season in science begins with emerging explorer Alexandra Cousteau as the Shoemaker Keynote Presenter. Granddaughter of legendary underwater filmmaker Jacques Cousteau, Alexandra grew up learning to love and now protect water as the lifeblood of our planet. The 2012 event also will explore ancient oceans, disappearing springs and efforts to save endangered fish, as well as share in the adventures of river running scientists. In addition, the Discovery Telescope is poised for its First Light!
Science in the Park will be 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Sat. Sept. 22 at Wheeler Park. A processing fee of $25 is required for all Science in the Park participants who are not already Festival sponsors (please submit a check payable to the Flagstaff Festival of Science with this completed form). A representative from each Science in the Park participating organization must sign and submit page 2.
