If you're looking for something interesting to do this month, look no further than this cool event in East Lansing! The 2017 Michigan State University Science Festival starts this weekend and runs April 7-23.

The festival has a variety of events over the next few weeks for all ages, and we're not going to lie, some of them look especially awesome. We've highlighted a few here for you to check out:

East Lansing Early Childhood Zone

In the Molecular Plant Science Building Atrium, this event has tons of hands-on activities for kids 7 and younger. It runs over this weekend, from 4/8-4/9, and is a great way to spend the weekend in a fun, learning environment with the little ones.

Coffee Science: Roasting, Brewing, and Tasting

Ferris Coffee from Grand Rapids is leading two presentations on Monday 4/10 on the science behind coffee. Register for either the 5:45 PM or 7:45 PM presentations and learn all about the culinary science, machine innovation, and agricultural/environmental practices behind coffee. 

Potter Park Zoo: An Evening of Awesome, Interactive Experiences at a Living Museum

This event, on Friday April 14th from 5-8 PM, explores conservation and the natural world. There are tons of hands-on activities at the zoo, including how to be an animal chef, or having up-close encounters with live animal ambassadors. With spring around the corner, zoo season is almost in full effect, and this is a great way to kick it off!
