Colorado Springs Science Festival

When: Oct. 5-13 2013

If you're about to skip over this paragraph because you don't really have any time on Thursday — wait. This is but one day in the Colorado Springs Science Festival, which runs through Sunday, and the whole schedule deserves a look. We chose to highlight Thursday because it offers both the County Coroner Crime Lab Tour (3 to 4:30 p.m., 2741 E. Las Vegas St., $3, 14-plus) and Underwater Video from Antarctica (8 to 9 p.m., U.S. Olympic Training Center, 1750 E. Boulder St., $3). But if you can't make it, maybe you'd be available for a Forces of Falling demonstration at CityROCK Climbing Center (Friday), or a Smartphone SCVNGR Hunt Downtown (Saturday). Some events are reservation-recommended, including the two mentioned for today, so visit for details. But do consider attending something — fests this far-reaching and well-thought-out do not come along often. — Kirk Woundy
