Explosive Science with Darryl Baynes
If you’ve ever seen a presentation by Darryl Baynes, you know that this guy will blow your mind. In some of Baynes past trips to Lancaster, presented by the North Museum of Natural History & Science, we’ve seen him freeze marshmallows and balloons, and put people’s heads in clouds of liquid nitrogen. Baynes returns to the North Museum in conjunction with Black History Month, providing a series of school, after school and member events. The general public is invited to attend a special program Saturday, Feb. 23 at 10 am at Bright Side Opportunity Center.
Baynes is co-founder and president of the Minority Aviation Education Association’s Interactive Science Programs. This national science and math education organization specializes in providing hands-on science demonstrations and experiments to capture the attention of students and encourage them to pursue careers in science. Baynes’ Lancaster programs will combine dynamic demonstrations with stories highlighting historic and modern-day scientists, including lesser-known contributions from minorities and women.
