If your kids love science, this might be something to check out this weekend. The Curiosity Cube from MilliporeSigma, which has a facility in Round Rock, has been traveling throughout the country and is spending the week here. It’s already been to Kealing Middle School and will be at Pflugerville Middle School, Canyon Ranch Elementary and Forest Creek Elementary next week. On Saturday, the Cube is free and open to the public at Earth Day ATX from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Huston-Tillotson University, 900 Chicon St.
So what is the Cube? It’s a mobile shipping container that has been converted into a science lab. Inside you can do science experiments with professional scientists to help you.
