The Tallahassee Mall Barnes and Noble transforms into a science haven the third Thursday of each month when educators from the MagLab’s Center for Integrating Research & Learning roll in their carts packed with fun science doodads. Doing Science Together is an opportunity for kids and their grown-ups to experience science in unexpected (and classroom-free) ways. Stop by each month at 6:30 p.m. to check it out; most programs last about an hour.
