It's a gas

Children and families can discover the thrill of science tomorrow night with David Heil, host of television's Emmy-winning series "Newton's Apple." Mr. Heil will present "It's a Gas" at the University of Maryland Baltimore County Lecture Hall V, Engineering and Computer Science Building. The program will let children play the role of scientist and unmask the identity of three gases. The event is one of several held in conjunction with the 1996 Annual Meeting and Science Innovation Exposition of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. More than 5,000 scientists will be in Baltimore, and some of the daily activities and programs will be open to the public.

"It's a Gas" takes place at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the UMBC campus and is free.

The entire family will be able to enjoy downtown Baltimore Saturday and Sunday when more than 25 attractions and restaurants offer one free child's admission or meal with each paying adult, while other venues offer activities created for the young and the young at heart.
