If you think you have the skills to walk and text, you might want to test that Tuesday and Wednesday at Safety Connect at the TRAC Center in Pasco.
Last year the event drew 20,000 participants.
The event is supported by the Department of Energy, Hanford contractors and Hanford unions. Many Hanford workers attend, but it's also a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education event with family-friendly activities.
The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry will be presenting "React-o-Blast" at 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and 12:30 p.m. Wednesday to demonstrate chemical reactions, some of them explosive.
OMSI also will present "Motion Commotion" with easy-to-understand physics at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday and 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The safety expo will have about 90 displays this year, with information and demonstrations related to the science of safety, safety awareness, safety culture for businesses and work/life balance.
Children can participate in a bicycle rodeo from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. each day and leave with a free, professionally fitted bike helmet. A drawing will be held for 13 new bikes each day.
Some crowd favorites will be back, including a vehicle accident drama in the arena, complete with fire trucks, police cars and a MedStar helicopter. A Hanford nuclear reservation demonstration of how radioactive waste is transported also is planned.
Both start at 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. each day.
Franklin Public Utility District also will use the arena at 11;30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. both days for an arc flash and a crane demonstration.
The Hanford Patrol will be demonstrating its work with K9 teams at 1:30 p.m. each day.
A schedule of events is posted at bit.ly/2018SafetyConnect.
The event is 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day. There is no charge for parking.
