Outdoor Event Celebrates Geeks

IOWA CITY, IA (CBS2/FOX28) -- Science lovers may have been called a geek at some point in their lives.

On Saturday, kids and their parents could wear it as a badge of honor.

It was Embrace Your Geekness Day at the Terry Trueblood Recreation Area in Iowa City.

There were plenty of fun science-related activities.

"What we encourage is sort of a free range kid. Let your kid go out let them explore nature. We have these events that encourage those sorts of activities," said Judy Joyce, Executive Director of Take a Kid Outdoors.

There was also a squirt gun competition for those who participated.
