Get your safety goggles ready; you're going to need them.
The Colorado Springs Cool Science Festival is kicking off at U.C.C.S. The carnival got things started on Saturday. Lots of groups and organizations set up booths to talk with kids about how they use science everyday. Organizers say about 5,000 people came out for the carnival.
News 5 brought out a live truck out to show how we use science in the news business. We set up a practice "live shot" and let the kids show off their skills as a reporter.
News 5's Matt Stafford helped get things started this morning with an experiment from A.F.A. Chemistry professor Dr. Ron Furstenau, but they didn't kick things off quite like News 5's Anya Winslow. Anya got to learn first-hand what happens when you mix warm water and cold liquid nitrogen. Her help really got things off with a bang!
The Cool Science Festival has stuff going on all week. For more information, just click here.
