Explore four floors of Discovery Stations: hands-on science activities from GSU departments and student groups. You’ll learn about the science of ice-cream (and make some yourself), how scuba diving gear works, and get you can get a picture of yourself as a mad scientist! You can also participate in a Scientist Scavenger Hunt for GSU scientist to learn about their work, and win a prize!
