About the Program
In close collaboration, Pinhead Institute and the Telluride Science Research Center (TSRC) are bringing Pinhead Punk Science to the region. Scientists will meet informally with children in the Mountain Village Heritage Plaza to demonstrate cool stuff in a scientific way.
Turning kids on to science and imparting an intuitive understanding the scientific method is a goal of the program.
