Saturday Science Buffet – Live Science with Bob Alderink

Science Buffet is a lively science presentation featuring a "taste” of everything the Museum has to offer: live animals, weird science facts, dramatic demonstrations, and explosions (small and controlled of course), all seasoned with a touch of humor.

Bob teaches math and science topics to Museum audiences in programs that range from large auditorium shows to intensive lab classes for school groups.
