It is NOT warm out this morning. Today's Breeze pairs well with a warm cup of Joe, hot cocoa, or tea. 

You want community articles? You got community articles. Check out the BLM horse gathering this past weekend, explore the new Native American exhibition at Scarlow's, and get your cold-weather tips. Kelly's Local Business Highlight is on The Science Zone. Don't forget to check out our refreshed weekly calendar.

The weather today is expected to glow up to 24°F thanks to the sun and will be accompanied by a 12 mph breeze.

The Weekend Gust

Wild Horse Gathering continues over weekend

The Bureau of Land Management in Wyoming announced that 947 horses have been gathered so far in the Red Desert Complex. They are aiming to remove around 2,400 horses total from the complex.

Renown Native American artists liven up Scarlow's

Three Native American artists are currently featured at Scarlow's Art and Coffee through November. The best part is the difference in all of their different art styles!

Make sure you stay (and travel) safe during winter storms

Casper Fire-EMS and the National Weather Service (NWS) created a handy checklist full of things to remember during winter storms.

Keep your family, home, and pets safe as we go into the colder months!

Local Business Highlight:
The Science Zone

Kelly here! Brrrr it is so cold outside...

You'd think we'd be used to it by now but I was not ready for single digit degrees that we had over the weekend. Maybe thinking about some of our upcoming events this week will warm me up (it's worth trying, right?). 

Have you guys heard of the Science Zone? If anything, I'm sure you've heard of some of the events they put on. From what I've heard, Trick or Treat Trail is a pretty infamous event in Casper. You can look forward to that on Saturday but they are also exploding pumpkins on Tuesday. You can read more about that in the calendar.

Read on to learn more about this organization!

What is The Science Zone?

As taken from their Mission Statement: "The Science Zone exists to inspire the mind, to delight the senses and to ignite a passion for the technical arts and sciences."

As we all know, this year is not a normal one. With that being said, The Science Zone has embraced technology in order to give families and kids unique opportunities to experience science.

What kind of things do they have?

While the physical exhibits at The Science Zone may be temporarily closed, the organization is still very much involved and passionate about helping families learn more about science.

They host fun and educational events in the community, have science boxes for sale, host virtual field trips and labs, and post fun videos to their various social media platforms.
Watch this amusing video of one of their experts creating slime using their favorite recipe.

This place makes science addicting

With a lot more families homeschooling this year, this place is a must stop for resources and ideas for projects that will make your kids excited about science. Their take home kits and videos on their Facebook and TikTok pages give your families the optimal amount of hands on experience. To order a kit, go here.

As I mentioned earlier, they are hosting a Family Science Series: Pumpkin Explosion tomorrow starting at 6:00 p.m. I definitely recommend you take advantage of this cool opportunity to combine learning with fun explosions.

There will be fun cash giveaways, drink specials, yummy food, and a costume contest with a wide variety of categories. Admission is only $5 and it will be well worth your money!
