9News Weather & Science Day at Coors Field – It’s Not Your Normal Field Trip

coors-science-day-9newsThe Colorado Rockies, 9News and Steve Spangler Science teamed up to launch the first Weather and Science Day at Coors Field. Over 1,000 Colorado elementary and middle schools have already been invited to join us at Coors Field in Denver on Thursday, May 7, 2009 for a day of learning and baseball. It’s a field trip and we’re turning Coors Field into your science lab.

You can call (303) ROCKIES to purchase tickets or you can download the brochure.

I’m excited to be joined by my good friend Kathy Sabine, meteorologist extraordinaire, from 9News (KUSA-TV in Denver). Kathy will share some of her best weather predicting secrets and teach us the science behind our most extreme weather in Colorado. But this is not a sit and watch experience. I’ll have you up on your feet learning about the power of air as each person conducts their own science activity. I’m told we might set a new world record if we play our cards right. We’re also working on some brand new science experiments that have been specially created just for this event. Learn about cool chemical concoctions, the power of pressure, properties of air, solar energy, extreme cold and maybe even a soda surprise. Guaranteed to have you laughing and learning… just watch out for the flying potatoes.

    I have a question about the windbags… I can only get mine to blow up about 5 feet. How do you get it to fill up completely. I know it should be simple but please help.. not working for me. I saw the video of five year olds doing this… any trick that I should know about?
