The public is invited to“Saturday Family Science – X-rays,” from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. March 3 at the Museum of Nature and Science, 411 N. Main St.

At the one-hour event, families and individuals can take a deeper look at what lies beneath the surface of anatomical and inanimate objects, by exploring the technology of X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. More can be learned about the science and technology of X-rays, how they aid society today, and what different objects look like through an X-ray lens. Guests will be able to describe the mechanics of X-rays by participating in an interactive matching game.

A short presentation will be at the beginning of the program, and will be followed by two or three stimulating activities.
