Science is bigger than you think!
Saturday, Oct 8, 2016

The Virginia Tech Science Festival is Saturday, October 8 from 10 AM to 3 PM at the Moss Arts Center, College Avenue, Newman Library, and outdoor spaces in between.

Science is bigger than you think. Science is a way of knowing about everything -- people, trends, living things, rocks, economics, how things move, what people buy, probabilities, stars, animals, history, memory, physics, and so much more. You might even say that science is universal (#VTSciFest).
