     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 June 16 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at Bibb Graves Hall on the UWA campus. Dr. Mustafa Morsy, a UWA professor, in collaboration with Dr. Andrea Mayfield and George Mayfield, a UWA alumni and local farmers, will present “Microscale Ag”, an activity for K-12. Students will learn how to grow fresh organic produce in their own backyard and the science behind agricultural production.

    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.
