One quick glance at the front of Helena College and it’s apparent there’s something big going on.

“Seismo” the seismosaurus, the world’s largest intact fossil, will be greeting visitors at Helena College’s Science Expo on Saturday.

“I do wish we could keep him forever,” said Barb McAlmond, communications director for Helena College.

“Seismo” may be awe inspiring, but McAlmond says Saturday has much more than just huge dinosaurs to make people go, “Wow!”

“The chance to learn about your metabolism by blowing up gummy bears seems awesome,” McAlmond said.

There will be also be DNA readings, eroding rivers and the opportunity for a close encounter with a swinging bowling ball.

She hopes to see hundreds of people on Saturday and said, “It’s a great opportunity for a family to have and learn something.”

The event is free and will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Helena College, 1115 N. Roberts St.

McAlmond said it’s open to all ages, but especially encourages older kids to attend.

Hampton Inn, Mountain West Bank, the Helena College Student Government Association and Watkins Shepard Trucking all helped in making the expo possible.
