Presenters will cover a multitude of topics from soil ecology to watershed’s ecosystem with the target audience middle to high school students.

“This program is a fun and dynamic way to engage Sandpoint’s youth while fulfilling our mission statement,” Veronica Knowlton, Panida managing director, said. “I grew up attending Science on Saturdays in my hometown, leading me to declare my first major in chemistry. I’m delighted at the opportunity to inspire Bonner County’s next generation of creative thinkers.”
