“Mad Scientists” to kick off new event for Region 8 children

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Children, from pre-kindergarten to sixth grade, can get a science lesson and run with it at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2.

It is the first time the A-State Student Research Council has ever hosted the "Mad Scientist Glo Run and Science Fun Night."

The event begins at 6 and runs through 8:30 p.m. with a science festival featuring booths and exhibits at the Arkansas State University Lab Sciences Building.

Kids can light their path with glo sticks and enjoy a one-mile fun run in the dark. The trek on campus features science stations, rocket launches and the magic of chemistry.
