The Public Affairs Office will present a special holiday edition of its popular "Fun with Science" show on Wednesday, Dec. 22, 1:30- 3:30 p.m. at the Lab's Discovery Center (Bldg. 651). This first session is full but an additional session will be held Tuesday, Dec. 28, at the same time and place.

Designed for children at the fifth grade level (though it can also be enjoyed by children younger and older), Fun with Science is intended to spark kids' interest in science through entertaining demonstrations and hands-on activities.

Space is limited to 47 guests, so reservations are required by calling 3-3272. The Discovery Center is located in an open area at the Laboratory's East Gate. No badging is required.
