BOULDER—Learn about our planet's past, present, and future at “Climate Explorations!” during this year’s Super Science Saturday at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). This free, family event will be held on Saturday, October 29, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at NCAR’s Mesa Lab at 1850 Table Mesa Drive in south Boulder. Students, parents, and teachers are invited to enjoy hands-on science and Halloween fun, activities, workshops, and presentations.
