The purpose of the presentations for children enrolled in the
museum’s "Fantastic Physics" spring break science camp is to
“educate the children and get them interested in the way the

UB Presidential Scholar.
Michki and fellow students Luke Bodmer and Dante Iozzo will do
the demonstrations; they got the idea from a UB Honors College
program called Spark, which encourages students to use their
passions to create positive change in the community, according to

The UB students developed the lesson plans on their own and
contacted the Buffalo Museum of Science.
