Science Saturday Online Activities

In the College of Science and Mathematics, we know how important it is to keep our children engaged with educational opportunities both at school and at home.  During the pandemic we did not host on-campus Science Saturday activities; instead, our faculty and students have created videos of demonstrations and at home experiments that you can do right now with your family.  If you have any questions or would like to get on our email list for announcement regarding Science Saturday activities, please contact us at SciSat@valdosta.edu or by phone at 229-333-5699.
