Super Science Saturday is a public science celebration that draws thousands of excited and curious people of all ages to the NCAR Mesa Lab to explore science!

This event is planned by the UCAR Center for Science Education with support from other UCAR/NCAR/UCP programs and local science education organizations.

Join us each fall for a fun day of science!

2020 Super Science Saturday Archive

The NCAR Mesa Lab remained closed through fall 2020 due to COVID-19, but Super Science Saturday prevailed! We held the event virtually on November 7, with a full day of exciting online demos and experiments from augmented reality to infrared radiation to the physics behind medieval trebuchets. We even had a special guest appearance by Mike Nelson, Chief Meteorologist for Denver's Channel 7, who did his Tornado Dance for us! 

Explore the fun of Super Science Saturday!
