CALS at the Market
Join the UI College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) at the 2017 Moscow Farmers Market each Saturday from May-Oct. in downtown Moscow.
The centerpiece of the CALS presence at the market will be the Summer of Science program in June, July and August for children ages 5 to 11. Topics will include entomology, animal science, plant science, nutrition, food science and more. CALS faculty experts and students will be on hand each Saturday to introduce children to the science behind their academic field through fun, hands-on, science-based experiences.
Children will receive a science passport upon their first visit to the CALS booth. Those that attend at least five events will be entered into a drawing for great prizes. Children will also have the opportunity to build their own science kit, earning different pieces at each event.
During May, September and October, CALS will offer additional programs about research, teaching and extension activities. The UI Extension Idaho Master Gardeners will attend the market the third Saturday of each month (except September) to answer home horticulture questions.
