Bringing Scientific Fun to Colorado's Front Range...
...Cool Science is all about making science cool for kids, just like music, art or sports. Our volunteers do this by bringing a wide variety of fun and engaging hands-on science activities year-round to schools, libraries and other public venues throughout eastern Colorado.
What differentiates us from many like-minded groups is that our leaders and key volunteers are actual scientists, engineers, or educators. Browse our website to find out more about what we do and how we can bring Cool Science to you! You can also download our informational flyer (PDF). (play extended video above on YouTube)
