Spiderman...Superman...and someone tell Black Panther he's been cloned. A lot.
Saturday at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo more than 300 young people came out with their parents and caregivers for a twist on Halloween.
There was definitely candy and prizes, don't worry, but there was also science.
The “Tricks, Treats and Science Discoveries: Free Family Fun and Learning Fair” was held at UB from 1 to 4 p.m. and it allowed children to go around to different booths set up to participate in interactive, pretty sweet science experiments.
"Our goal is to... show the community they have a space here at UB, and in this new medical school that we've put in their community, and open our doors to them to let them know that," said Megan Wilson-Crowley, an organizer of the event.
"And... really to show them that research can be fun. Science can be fun, and not scary."
The day included things like a "cookie clinical trial", a "GEM Strawberry DNA table", and a life-size skeleton puzzle along with raffles and prizes donated by community sponsors.
