This week is all about science in the Colorado Springs. So much so that Mayor Lionel Rivera signed a proclamation Thursday afternoon, calling this week Colorado Springs Science Week.
It's all an effort to get kids interested in Science.
Organizers are getting ready for events on the campus at U.C.C.S., through Saturday, which will have tons of kids from the area getting an early interest in science -- something Mayor Rivera says will be important to our workforce for their generation.
"In order for us to stay competitive in the future in those fields, we have to have our own engineers innovating and developing the different technologies that have made us leaders in the past," Rivera says.
