Geek out! PA event! March 14th 10-4


Geek out

Kid-Friendly Family Fun

On March 14, Feiro Marine Life Center will again host the free, community-oriented Science & Technology Celebration from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. People of all ages and interests are invited to engage with scientists at booths and during presentations, and examine infographic posters that provide examples of how science works to contribute to our communities and our quality of life. Kids of all ages will enjoy displays, games, and activities specially geared to make science fun.
“Science on Display” is back this year. This display honors the broad spectrum of retired and active scientists and science educators living or working across the north Olympic Peninsula. From each profile, learn what inspired him or her to pursue a chosen field. Discover the science education, applied science, and interesting research conducted right here on the Peninsula, thus putting a face from the community on science in the community.

Why celebrate science?
Because science helps us understand hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes and how to capture, store, and use power from the sun. Science has shown us that it’s important to wash our hands and to cover our mouths when we sneeze. We use science to heat our homes, grow our food, and predict the weather. Science is everywhere, everyday.

GeekOut! is a self-sustained community event sponsored annually by Feiro Marine Life Center. Support for this event is provided from across the north Olympic Peninsula by volunteers who are members of grassroot organizations and groups, as well as residents and friends who annually volunteer in the Corn Booth during the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend. Some of these same volunteers fostered this local celebration in 2017 with a shared mission to celebrate the essential role science and technology plays in all our daily lives.
