Students and community members from across Pike County visited the University of Pikeville today to take part in a physics zoo.

The event, part of this week's Remake Learning Days, was hosted by the university's science department.

The public was invited for some hands-on fun as the second floor of the Armington Science Center was transformed to house more than 50 interactive activities.

Organizers said the event was a success for everyone involved, especially the students.

"They've really, really buckled down. They've interacted with things. They've read the signs. They've understood the science. They've gravitated back to something that's really fascinated them," said Robert Arts, Professor of Education and Physics.

He said the adults enjoyed watching the students interact.

"So, it's been a tremendous experience, I think. The teachers have given me the same feedback, that they've seen this light in the students' eyes," he added.

Remake Learning Days events continue through Saturday. For more information, visit
