     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 Aug. 31 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Bibb Graves Hall room 114 on the UWA campus. Dr. Andrew Rindsberg, a UWA professor and butterfly watcher, will present a workshop entitled “Autumn Butterflies.”

    Students will learn about butterfly behavior and will take a nature walk to identify butterflies on the UWA campus. The students will also learn how to attract local butterflies to their own backyards. All students will receive a free photo guide to help identify butterflies and Science Saturdays’ pen.

    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 eighth 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.
