On the List | Science Olympiad at Seattle Central, Magma Fest in the Central District


School kids from around Puget Sound are going to science the HECK out of things this weekend on Capitol Hill.

The Northwest Regional Science Olympiad Tournament returns again to Seattle Central for a Saturday of science challenges and fun:

Teams from over 20 middle and high schools have spent weeks and months applying math and science skills to design, build and operate projects. Competitions will be held in 50 different categories, including hydrology, bridge building, electric vehicles, wind power, forensics and anatomy.

Bring your budding Mars explorer along to cheer them on.

No artist is allowed to appear at Magma twice, so every year showcases a whole new array of up-and-coming and established performers from the Pacific Northwest and beyond! Every event is all-ages and donation-supported, and proceeds go towards continuing to ensure Hollow Earth’s existence as a community resource and, soon, a low-power FM radio station!

Meanwhile, this year’s “100% local” Seattle Fringe Festival finishes up its run.

Oh, by the way, First Thursday means it’s time for the Pioneer Square Art Walk. Now if only there were a direct, relatively easy to use though maybe a little slow public transit option to get there!
