Do you love animals and dream of working with them? If the answer is yes, then enroll in Vet Academy! You'll learn how to speak dog and cat, what helps make animals happy and well, and much much more, so grab your favorite stuffed animal, your stethoscope and lab coat, and prepare for an exciting animal adventure.

Gooey? Yes!! Messy? Probably! But isn't that what makes science fun? We'll "mess" with different kinds of polymers to see what makes slime work and how your very own concoction is really the best.

The Earth is a pretty awesome planet and we're happy to be on it! (Mars is kinda cool, too. But only Beaker and the Professor know about that. Guess they'll have to disguise their terraforming experiments before anyone else gets there...)

Anyway, come hang out with us on Earth Day, April 22. We're bound to have something interesting going on, and you can let the Earth know how much you care!
