Two-Day Event—Three Days of TV

This past weekend the Maryland Science Center hosted its 10th annual Backyard Science Days. The two days of animal encounters, experiments, and demonstrations were accompanied by three days of live TV coverage.

On Friday, WBFF did several news segments where Science Center educators created elephant toothpaste, electrified a pickle, turned a light bulb on with a hot dog, and showed off a huge black vulture.

On Saturday, Bat Expert Rob Mies’ showed WBAL and WJZ many of his bats, including a Malayan Flying Fox (the largest species of bat in the world.) We loved WBAL reporter Omar Jimenez holding the bat! Also on Sunday, Rob was in studio with WBFF, demonstrating local bats’ echolocation, with an app on his iPad.

Not too bad for one weekend!
