Asian Americans in Science
Saturday, February 14, 2015 | 1-4 p.m.
This year marks the third annual Asian Americans in Science. You can meet science and education professionals who represent many geographic backgrounds, from SE Asia to the mainland and the Pacific Islands. Learn about what they do through interactive displays and presentations, and discover the inspiring contributions they've made to technology, education, health care, and innovation in Minnesota.
Science Fusion is great for kids and adults alike. Activities are included in museum admission. Up to four children get in free with each full price adult (from 1-4 p.m. at the box office).
