The annual Chandler Science Spectacular, sponsored by Intel and Northrup Grumman, drew families for a day of hands-on learning, as this teen atop a phone pole experienced firsthand.
The event demonstrated the importance of science in everyday life and featured the launching of a model rocket every hour. Technology company volunteers focused their activities on computer science.
Participants in the daylong event earned stamps for participation in each activity, eventually allowing them to exchange the stamps for a prize.
