Camps, Classes & Activities

“Rocks & Rockets” outreach event in Colby, KS. “Rocks & Rockets” is a FREE admission, come-and-go event packed with science games and activities, including numerous hands-on experiences. Additionally, we will be giving away FREE STEM books, posters, stickers, and more. The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 17th, 2024, from 1:00-5:00 pm at the Colby Event Center. I was wondering if you had a calendar to put this event on or listserv of families who might be interested in attending this FREE event. 

"Discover the wonders of space and geology through interactive games, demonstrations, scientists, a walkable Giant Mars Map (must have SOCKS), and so much more! Activities for all ages! This come-and-go event is perfect for all ages – stay for a few hours and dive into the excitement. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult."

For more information or if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. You can also find additional details on our Facebook event page and the event website, which provide insights into the venue, past activities, and previous exhibitors.

For this reason the Boys State college fair attracts top tier schools who recruit Boys State participants.
