Think you can get away from Science Buzz by going to the Minnesota State Fair? Think again. You'll have three different opportunities to see Science Buzz exhibits if you visit the Fair through Labor Day.

At the Education Building, the Minnesota Department of Health will be presenting hands-on and digital activities about the importance of vaccinations. Those activities are available daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Visitors to the Eco Experience building can learn about new data and trends on climate change at a computer kiosk being presented by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and Science Buzz. It is also open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Here's a link to those pages if you can't make it to the Fair.

Also, on Friday, Aug. 29, faculty from the University of Minnesota's Institute for Math and its Applications will be showing a number of hands-on math activities at the university's exhibit building, including the popular Traveling Salesman Problem game board. They will also be presenting from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. that day. Here's a link to the Buzz's online content on the Traveling Salesman Problem.
