For the third consecutive year, the city will host a children’s Science Day at Lake Boren Park.

This year’s event includes workshops of aviation, robotics and bridge building. The event is from noon – 4 p.m. Sept. 20 at Lake Boren Park Shelter No. 2. Representatives from the Museum of Flight and Pacific Science Center will present the exhibits.

The day is for children ages 5 to 12. Science Day uses interactive demonstrations and everyday topics to encourage interest in math, science and technology at an early age, said Jules Maas, special events producer for the city.

“This event is an opportunity to engage our children in some of the lighter applications of science,” she said.

“With the current and future reach of science and technology throughout our society, the need to emphasize a good education in these areas is critical.”

Registration is required. E-mail julesm@ci.newcastle.wa.us with your child’s name, age and workshops he or she would like to attend.
