The UB Educational Opportunity Center invites the community to join us for our upcoming second annual “Strengthening Families Celebration” on Saturday, October 17th from 11am-2pm at our downtown campus.
This free educational and fun-filled experience will feature scientific experiments, technology, animal exhibits, games, prizes and more for children and adolescents.
“Keeping Our Children Safe” is this year’s event theme designed to coincide with National Fire Prevention Week that occurs in October. The Buffalo Fire Department has graciously agreed to bring one of their state-of-the-art fire engines to the event to educate children about how they work and what they do to help keep families and children safe year round. Parents will also be able to learn about tuition-free educational and training programs available at the EOC.
The University at Buffalo mascot, Victor E. Bull, will also be in attendance to take pictures and have fun with the kids.
Registration for this exciting celebration is going on now! Interested individuals can use their smartphones to register online via a QR code or visit eoc.buffalo.edu and click ‘Register for Event’.
