The Evergreen Science Carnival promises breathtaking sideshows and unbelievable phenomena.

Don't go to the carnival expecting bearded ladies, strongmen or magic shows.

Think more along the lines of a chance to view solar flares or learn how to extract catnip-or see a student set his hand on fire, says Peter Robinson, who founded the carnival eight years ago.

Don't worry about that student: He meant to do it.

"Last year, we had someone who did cold flame," says Robinson, the science operations manager at the Evergreen State College. "He had a glove on. He ignited his hand. It had a blue flame, but it wasn't burning hot-it was burning cold. He was teaching the visitors about chemistry."
