BOARDMAN — People are invited to learn more about Oregon agriculture with food science activities at the SAGE Center.
The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry will present hands-on activities for all ages during Celebrate Oregon Agriculture with OMSI. The event is Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the SAGE Center, 101 Olson Road, Boardman. Admission is free during the special event.
Celebrate Oregon Agriculture will include a variety of activities and experiments — from seed identification and pH experiments to microscope art and a puzzle of Oregon’s growing regions. The program explores the science behind the food we eat and offers fun for all ages, said Lisa Patrick, SAGE Center manager. The program also features popular exhibits from the Portland-based OMSI facility.
“We are pleased to host an organization with a solid reputation for encouraging curiosity and exploration,” Patrick said. “OMSI’s willingness to bring an array of new activities again this year is much appreciated.”
