For another year, the University of Illinois Department of Physics is bringing "Science at the Market" on selected Saturday mornings to Urbana's Market at the Square. Various U of I and other experts will be on hand each week with demonstrations illustrating the science they represent and to answer questions from the public about the researchers' disciplines.
MSTE staff have been working with faculty and staff in Computer Science, Education, and the U of I Extension to develop curriculum materials for 4-H clubs.
