Guess who’s going to see Jeff Corwin live, headlining for the Nebraska Science Festival (NEScifest)?
That’s right. We are!!
Four tickets, one for each of us, the whole family is excited. Now we just have to wait until April. We spent a little bit of time in a little bit of a line waiting to snag these tickets for free. It was well worth the wait!
In preparation for seeing Jeff Corwin live, we’ve been watching episodes of The Jeff Corwin Experience on Netflix. At first the girls weren’t too interested in it (sorry Jeff) but the more we watch it the more they giggle and show wonder at the different animals and environment Jeff Corwin explores. It’s to the point now that the girls ask to watch Jeff Corwin and they’re excited when they ask. That makes me happy.
Jeff Corwin isn’t the only thing going on in April for the NEScifest!
You can attend the 2014 Nebraska Science Festival from April 24th through April 27th at various locations around Nebraska. The schedule of events for NEScifest has something for just about everyone. There are a few presentations that are geared more for adults, which my husband and I might attend, but there are even more activities and presentations for the kids!
Notable events and locations that are peaking our interest for the festival are:
- The Science Expo at the Durham Museum and Strategic Air & Space Museum
- City Sprouts Community Garden
- eCreamery & Gelato
- Fred G. Dale Planetarium
- Fontenelle Forest
- Lauritzen Gardens
- Omaha Children’s Museum
Keep in mind our girls are 4 and 5 so those are the events and locations that apply to us. There are so many more things to tour and learn about in many different fields, so check out the schedule on NEScifest.com to see what I didn’t list.
Keep an eye open on the NEScifest website for ticket release dates, times, schedules, volunteer opportunities, sponsorship and donation instructions, and more.
As for Jeff Corwin, if you happen to read this, my girls would really like you to bring the Wild Kratts with you. Not that they don’t love you, but, well, the Kratt Brothers have creature suits that are pretty dang fantastic and they have a lot of questions about the technology that goes into them.
Which event at the Nebraska Science Festival are you most excited about?
