     The University of West Alabama’s College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics invites elementary and middle school students in and around Sumter County to the next in its series of Science Saturdays on May 26 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Bibb Graves Hall on the UWA campus.

    Dr. John McCall, professor of biological and environmental sciences at UWA, will lead students on a trip to a stream and a lake around the UWA campus to learn about fishes and vertebrates present in these environments.
    Science Saturdays are designed to give young students early exposure to the world of science. The sessions create excitement and enthusiasm that students need not only to learn the basics of science, but also gain the tools to further their studies in the field.

    The workshop is free and open to all children in fourth through sixth grades. Spaces are limited. For more information or to reserve a spot, please email Rosie Campbell (rmc@uwa.edu) or call 205-652-3414. For more information please visit Science Saturdays website at http://www.uwa.edu/sciencesaturdays.
