Exhibitors / Activities for Saturday, October 28, 2017

Here is the list of fun, fabulous, and zany exhibits (or activities) that will be at the North Bay Science Discovery Day.  Each exhibitor offers a wonderful hands-on activity for kids -- just for them to get excited about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Come back again to this site and watch the list grow! For details on being an exhibitor as well as participant lists from previous years, go to exhibitor information.
