Arizona Science Center Wants Your PEEPS and Hard-Boiled Eggs


Extra PEEPS in the back of the freezer? Leftover hard-boiled eggs from that Easter hunt?

Bring them down to the Arizona Science Center this Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and have some fun.

The science folks will explain what really happens when you put a PEEP in the microwave, and you might just learn how to catapult those old eggs. Just make sure they're not too old, or you  might learn an unwanted lesson about smells.

BYOP&E. (That's Bring Your Own PEEPS & Eggs.)
