     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 October 27 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at Bibb Graves Hall on the UWA campus. Dr. Andrew Rindsberg, UWA professor and butterfly watcher,  will present a colorful talk about butterfly behavior and lead a nature walk to help participants identify butterflies on the UWA campus.

    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 third through eighth grades. Spaces are limited. For more information or to reserve a spot, please email Rosie Campbell or call 205-652-3414.
