Super Science Saturday Hosts its 25th Science and Technology Event

Ridgewood NJ Super Science Saturday presents its 25th celebration of science and technology
on Saturday, March 9. This fascinating and entertaining event will be from 9 a.m. to 1:30
p.m. at Ridgewood High School, 627 East Ridgewood Avenue. Admission is free.

Started by a Ridgewood science teacher and a handful of parents and students in 1987,
Super Science Saturday has become Northern New Jersey’s largest science show for
both students and professional scientists.

To celebrate its 25th year, Super Science Saturday invites attendees to participate in a
25-foot egg drop contest. Participants will be supplied with kits, which they can use to
protect their eggs from breaking on impact. Village and school district officials will be
invited to compete with students in the egg drop contest.

Other highlights include a Franklin Institute show on “Life in Space,” hundreds of exhibits
and demonstrations, the “Great Paper Airplane Contest,” and model rocket launches on
the high school football field.

Students from any school system, as well as adult hobbyists and professional scientists,
are invited to share their love of science with the community. Super
Science Saturday is a non-competitive event designed for fun, understanding and
appreciation of science and technology in our daily lives.

Two long-standing village institutions, The Valley Hospital, Ridgewood’s not-for-profit
hospital, and Ridgewood Education Foundation, which provides grants to enhance and
support the quality of education in Ridgewood public schools, again are fully funding
Super Science Saturday.
