CALS at the Market
Join the U of I College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) at the 2019 Moscow Farmers Market each Saturday from May-October in downtown Moscow.
The centerpiece of the CALS presence at the market will be the Summer of Science program in June, July and August for children ages 5 to 11. Topics will include entomology, animal science, plant science, nutrition, food science and more. CALS faculty experts and students will be on hand each Saturday to introduce children to the science behind their academic field through fun, hands-on, science-based experiences.
Children will receive a science passport upon their first visit to the CALS booth. Those that attend at least five events will be entered into a drawing for great prizes. Children will also have the opportunity to build their own science kit during their visit.
During May, September and October, CALS will offer additional programs about research, teaching and extension activities.
