Harper College is excited to welcome families back to campus for Experience Day, an interactive event featuring more than 40 hands-on activities and demonstrations by faculty, staff and community organizations.

Families are invited to roll up their sleeves and explore the sciences, math, technology, liberal arts and other fields from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5. The event is free and open to the community.

 

Attendees will meet Harper faculty, experience classroom labs and get a firsthand look at life as a Harper student. Experience Day will offer something for everyone of all ages.

"If you've never been to college, it can be scary. Not just for kids but for adults too -- where to park, where to go," Community Relations Manager and event organizer Amie Granger said. "But we can make this first experience a positive one in a real college classroom, a real college lab. It's about breaking down fears or hesitation and showing that you belong here."

Activities will take place in the Avanté Center (Buildings X, Y and Z) and the Career and Technical Education Center (Building H) on Harper's main campus, 1200 W. Algonquin Road, Palatine. Convenient parking is located in lot 3 or the parking garage.

The slate of activities includes Stress Ball Making, LED Fun Time, Bridge Building, Solar System Scavenger Hunt, Kitchen Science: Strawberry DNA, Balance is for Everyone, and Can You Answer a U.S. Citizenship Question?

Refreshments will be served. Check harpercollege.edu/experience for updates on activities and participating organizations.
