For the 7th year, the U of I is bringing "Science at the Market" on most Saturday mornings to the Farmers Market at Lincoln Square mall in Urbana. The U of I and other experts will be on hand with demonstrations illustrating the science they represent, and to answer questions from the public about the researchers' discipline. For example, you may see what birds and other animals live in C-U parks thanks to the Urbana Anita Purves Nature Center; floating superconductors shown by Physics; solar flares via solar telescopes with the Staerkel Planetarium; pants that don't stain thanks to nanotechnology; 3-D printing by the IGL; lizards and other animals shown by the GEEB, and learn a lot about bees, bumblebees and pollination in June, on the Pollinators' Saturdays.

U of I and other experts will be on hand with demonstrations illustrating the science they represent, and to answer questions from the public about the researchers' discipline. For example, you will find out how to save billions of gallons of water, and how to dispose of medications without spoiling our drinking water from the ISTC, you may see floating superconductors on the Physics days, solar flares via solar telescopes on the Staerkel Planetarium days, pants that don't stain on nanotechnology days, 3-D printer on the IGL days, a blue tongued lizard on GEEB days and a lot about bees, bumblebees and pollination in June, on the Pollinators Saturdays.

Ever wonder what a "semiconductor" really is and how it works? Or if "black holes" really exist? Or why the sky is blue instead of red? Or why computer chips are made of silicon and not aluminum? Or what a "quark" is?

On Saturday, you can get your questions answered by a world expert.

Scientists from the University of Illinois' top-ranked Physics department, including Nobel laureate Tony Leggett, will be answering questions about science at the Urbana Farmer's Market on Saturday, September 25, 2010 and October 9, 2010, from 8 a.m. to 12:00 noon. Children are especially encouraged to bring their questions and meet real scientists.

"Science at the Market, Locally Grown is part of our department's ongoing efforts to make science accessible to the general public and to get kids excited about science," said Dr. Inga Karliner, organizer of the event. "We're hoping many people will come to ask questions of our world-class physicists."

Urbana's Market at the Square, one of Illinois' largest farmers' markets, is held in the Lincoln Square parking lot at the corner of Vine and Illinois streets every Saturday morning.
