Summer is an excellent time to get out there and explore Laramie with the kids. One of my favorite things to do with the family is going for an adventure through the wilderness around the Gem City or strolling on the Greenbelt. And tomorrow, you and the kids have a chance to explore Laramie in a new way - through science at the Curiosity Cube!

I know you're wondering - what is the Curiosity Cube? Imagine a science lab but way cooler because it's portable and designed to spark scientific curiosity in kids! The Cube is a retrofitted 22x10-foot shipping container that travels the country, bringing hands-on science to kids throughout the U.S.
