OKLAHOMA CITY – What happens when more than 5,000 fourth and fifth graders from around the state converge to learn about protecting the environment, conserving natural resources and using alternative fuels and technologies?

It’s called ScienceFest Oklahoma and students will enjoy a day packed with fun exhibits, hands-on demonstrations, kid-friendly workshops and also consume around 7,000 hot dogs.

The annual event will take place on April 24th at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Gardens.  Attendees will also enjoy a special California sea-lion show provided by the zoo’s staff in honor of ScienceFest and Earth Day.

Registration is full for the April 24 event, but will open again in November for the ScienceFest 2015.
