Science Extravaganza


Each year, Northwest Nazarene University welcomes about 1,300 Treasure Valley students to campus who are eager to learn more about science. Among a host of science activities, area schoolchildren will fire off catapults, make models of human skin, and see and touch live animals. These unique learning experiences allow students to learn about important science concepts while connecting with local scientists and NNU science students. In a time when funds are limited, teachers have a great opportunity to expose their students to exciting hands-on activities.

The annual Science Extravaganza has been sponsored by the Idaho National Laboratory and hosted by NNU for over a decade.
