Earth Day 2016 takes root as a week of events across UH campuses.
Fair highlights include bustling hands-on, interactive learning activities for the entire family. One of the exhibits, Quicksand Goo, showcases a mysterious glob that is both a liquid and a solid. There will also be an exhibit where people will try walking on water. Returning crowd-favorites include CSI Leeward, a mock crime scene investigation; Bubblicious Geometry; and BONES, a forensic puzzle waiting to be solved.
The family-oriented day also includes food booths, a plant sale and entertainment. Admission is free, with ample parking.
