Mystery Solving Science Lab, Saturday, July 22

Help the Museum solve mysteries using science! To do this, you will need to think like a scientist and participate in two hands on experiments. In this lab, kids will search clues to find out who stole a missing artifact from the Collection, using the hands-on scientific techniques.


What’s in the Garden Lab, Saturday, August 12

Interested in the food we eat and where it comes from? In this Curiosity Lab, kids will be hands-on learning about gardens, from how to care and harvest, down to what is in the soil that helps plants grow! In the lab, kids will prepare their own snack using some of the garden vegetables. This Lab will partially take place outside, weather permitting.
