Come celebrate Earth Science Day with us! Pima Community College is hosting an Earth Science Day event at Northwest Campus on Oct. 16. 

Learn about planet Earth and engage in hands-on activities for all ages related to protecting our environment, as well as climatology, geosciences, biology, astronomy, and physics from more than 40 community organizations. Find out about careers in science as well as many other excellent PCC programs, try out our giant campus sundial, snack on food cooked in a solar oven and observe the sun safely through a solar telescope.

Activities are 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on the second level.

The Northwest Campus is located at 7600 N. Shannon Road, just north of the Ina and Shannon intersection. Parking is free. Join us for this fantastic fun event!
