‘MythBusters’ hosts at UNCC science expo

The hosts of the Discovery Channel’s popular “MythBusters” show will headline a show after the UNC Charlotte Science and Technology Expo Sunday at the campus.

The event is open to the public, with no admission charge. It will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the lower plaza, between Halton Arena and the Student Union.

The expo will feature more than 20 interactive displays for science-curious people of all ages. Among campus organizations participating are the Department of Chemistry, the Department of Geography and Earth Sciences, the Department of Biology, and the Botanical Gardens.

Following the expo, at 2:30 p.m., Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman from “MythBusters” will host a show in Halton Arena. They will share behind-the-scenes stories of the show, which debunks myths, urban legends and popular beliefs, through scientific testing and experiments.

Tickets for the show are available online at www.ncsciencefestival.org. Staff reports
