FRAMINGHAM – Gun powder explosions in the lab, glitter slime in the parking lot, wind turbines in the quad, and gluten free cookies samples were among the many offerings at the 4th Annual Science on State Street event Saturday, April 21 on the campus of Framingham State University.
The free family and community event also included free planetarium shows in the Christa McAuliffe Center on campus, arts & crafts, composting tips, robotics, and a chance to sample foods astronauts eat in space.
There were Hot Wheels experiments to measure velocity, alligator and dwarf tomato plants at the botany table, and a chance to tour the melting ice caps of Greenland with NOVA and its 360-degree virtual reality technology.
