DuPont's Cool Science, On The Square!

Event Date: 
Jun 22 2017 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

Plans are underway to host the first Cool Science Show in concert with our the DuPont Clifford Brown Jazz Festival.   I’m determined to find the next George Washington Carver or our Stephanie Kwolek (Inventor of Kevlar) while exposing students (and their parents) to the exciting world of STEM.    

I need your help!   I’m counting on your organization to set-up, and staff, an informational table and support this event.    I will forward a flyer for the event on Friday morning.


What:   Cool Science on the Square

A FUN-filled,  high-energy, hands-on, engaging science show.  Students will have an opportunity to work in the science lab of award-winning Master Scientist and Rap Educator Grand Hank.  International  DJ,  Marty Geez will be on hand to help students blow off a little energy dancing before getting to work.   Tyraine Ragsdale (aka Grand Hank) is a former research chemist for the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies.    Following the show, Grand Hank will sign autographs and take photograph’s with the students.   There will be giveaways, mentoring sign-up, resources for parents, science grants and much more.

Time:    Noon - 2:00 p.m.
