Guests at “Final Blast,” an end-of-the-summer festival at Explorit Science Center, will get to see an explosive chemistry show by UC Davis chemistry department faculty and safely look at the sun through a telescope with the Davis-Explorit Astronomy Club.

Other fun and educational activities are planned at the event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 7, at Explorit, 3141 Fifth St. in Mace Ranch.

Suggested donations are $20 per family before Sept. 7 or $25 per family on the day of the event. Explorit is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation and all donations are tax-deductible.

Jamba Juice will be present and will donate 20 percent of its sales at the event to Explorit.

Guests also will be able to take the ride of a lifetime on one of Peter Wagner’s Whymcycles, watch as the local Citrus Circuits robotics team show off their national championship robot, learn more about Davis Makerspace and see their various inventions, and experience math fun with Chelsea Lee and her hands-on challenges.

All comers also are invited to use rubber bands to explode watermelons!

During the event, Explorit will recognize the support of the Yolo-Solano Air Quality Control District board of directors, who made possible Explorit’s new hybrid SUV, which is used to deliver educational programs to schools throughout the region.

Explorit Science Center’s mission is to ignite and foster curiosity and learning about science and nature through inquiry and discovery for all ages. The center delivers science education programs to schools in 15 counties and serves as a popular destination for classes, families and summer science campers.

Explorit’s own full-time teaching staff design and create cutting-edge, hands-on science programs in collaboration with UCD and Sacramento State faculty and other local experts.

Founded in 1982, Explorit recently celebrated its 32nd anniversary. To find out more, visit www.explorit.org or call 530-756-0191.
