     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 22 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Bibb Graves Hall on the UWA campus. Dr. John McCall, a UWA professor, will present a workshop entitled “Finding Nemo…and his buddies: Sumter County Fish.”

    Students will learn about the fish that live in Sumter County’s creeks and streams. They will receive hands-on experience in collecting and identifying the fish.

    Science Saturdays are designed to give young students early exposure to the world of science and mathematics. 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 twelfth grades. Spaces are limited. For more information or to reserve a spot, please email Rosie Campbell or call 205-652-3414. For more information please visit Science Saturday’s website.
