2018 Science at the Market

For another year, the U of I is bringing Science at the Market on selected Saturday mornings to the Farmers Market at Lincoln Square mall in Urbana.

U of I and other experts will be on hand with demonstrations illustrating the science they represent, and to answer questions from the public about the researchers' discipline. For example, you will find out how to save billions of gallons of water, and how to dispose of medications without spoiling our drinking water from the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC), you may see floating superconductors on the Physics days, solar flares via solar telescopes on the Staerkel Planetarium days, pants that don't stain on nanotechnology days, 3-D printer on the Illinois Geometry Lab (IGL) days, a blue tongued lizard on Graduates in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (GEEB) days and a lot about bees, bumblebees and pollination in June, on the Pollinators Saturdays.
