I received this email from Greg (a member of other Meetup groups). Please contact him directly if you would like to offer a science exhibit or experiment.
My name is Greg Drejza, I am the brainchild of the 1st ever AZ Children's Art &
Music Festival called Arizona KidStock™ (Woodstock styled Festival for Kids).
This year we are holding it on Nov 12, 2011 (10am-6pm) at Goodyear Ballpark in
Goodyear AZ. At this ongoing annual event, we plan to have a main stage, 9 Kid
Zones (Arts, Music, Science, Animals, Health/Fitness, Character Corner, Ten
Zone, Toddler Zone, Parent Time Out Zone) and more.
I have contacted you to see if you or anyone from your meetup group can present
any type of science related content/information to children at Arizona KidStock™.
We would get you a section within the Science Kid Zone if you can provide a "hands
on" science related interactive presentation.
The Science Zone is called: Psychedelic Science Revolution, we are trying to have
the names of the zones WoodStock-ish.... We aim to provide a hands on, interactive
day full of imagination, creativity, fun and music for children, what better way for kids
to understand science! Great exposure for your meetup too! PS Sid the Science Kid will be there!
Please contact Greg at 623-556-3616 if you are interested in
being a part of this or have other great ideas that could help us.
The festival is a few days away so please contact me as soon as you can to
ensure we can get you a spot, if you have any costs also please let me know.
Thank you - Greg Drejza

teens and adults to enjoy throughout the day. Everything about Kidstock will be
an interactive experience for all involved.
