Science, Hockey, and Pi Day!

On Saturday, March 14, The Big Brain Club once again teamed up with the Colorado Avalanche and the University of Denver’s Society of Physics Students for Get Your Nerd On Day at the Pepsi Center.

More than 550 students and parents joined us for an afternoon of interactive science experiments, games, prizes, and NHL hockey.

This is part of a series of community learning events that bridge the gap between classroom learning and real-world application. Previous events have included an exclusive presentation from astronaut Buzz Aldrin, a nutrition-based workshop with King Soopers, an earlier physics-centric event with the Avs, and more.

All proceeds from Get Your Nerd On Day benefit The Big Brain Club, allowing us to provide even more resources to our school partners!

Here’s a look at some highlights:

Thanks to our friends at DU and the Avs, and thanks to everyone who came out and spent their Saturday getting their nerd on! We hope to see you all at our next GYNOD event, on April 12 with the Denver Nuggets!
