The Nebraska Science Festival is quickly approaching and we are looking forward to having you as a part of this unique event ( Like last year, Dr. Britigan is looking for student volunteers to help enroll classroom fieldtrip participants in a research study using a 6-question survey on food group awareness for children and adults.

There are two planned sessions each day: one from 9:15 -11:15 a.m. and one from 12:15-2:15 p.m. on that Thursday and Friday. ┬áThere are approximately 400 students total in the morning session and 400 in all afternoon sessions.
