FORT COLLINS – Colorado 4-H Youth Development will warm up Coors Field with baseball science on April 28.

Colorado State University Extension, the Colorado Rockies, 9News, and Steve Spangler Science are teaming up for the seventh annual Weather and Science Day at Coors Field, April 28, 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Designed to help students explore hands-on science with real-life applications, this longstanding partnership brings more than 10,000 school children to Coors Field to learn about weather and science by participating in interactive experiments that incorporate physics, math and meteorology.

“Members of Colorado 4-H are excited to be part of Weather and Science Day,” said Annette Haas, 4-H Youth Development Specialist for STEM and K-12 Programs. “This is an amazing opportunity for us to share science, technology, engineering, and math with thousands of youth in the Denver Metro area.”

CSU students volunteered through CSUnity to assemble the baseball-themed science experiments. Read more about their efforts here.

Media are welcome to join CSU’s Extension program, America’s Science Teacher Steve Spangler, and the 9News Weather Team for this educational event.

Following the event, the students and teachers will attend the Rockies vs. Pirates game at 1:10 p.m.

Tickets for Weather and Science Day at Coors Field can be purchased online at or by calling 303-Rockies.
