More than 50 organizations and community groups took part in Earth Science Day at Northwest Campus on Oct. 17.
An event that runs once a semester, Earth Science Day promotes education for the geosciences through presentations and displays.
Numerous hands-on science and engineering activities helped spark students interest in the natural world, according to Michael Tulino, vice president for student development at the Northwest Campus.
Participants were able to taste cookies baked in a solar oven and enjoy topics in the climatology, astronomy and geology fields.
Pima Air and Space Museum, Titan Missile Museum and Society of Women Engineers were a few of the many organizations that attended the event.
