25feb11:00 amCuriosity Lab: Mystery Solving Science11:00 am


Event Details

Kids! Solve mysteries at the GRPM on Saturday, February 25th!

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.

Someone has stolen an artifact from the Museum Collections! The museum staff needs your help to figure out who did it. Luckily the thief left a note at the scene of a crime. You will learn to use a scientific technique called chromatography to determine the thief’s identity.

Additionally, someone is selling their “Magical Copper Cleaning Product” to visitors at the museum for $1,000 a bottle! If we can prove that just a few simple household ingredients will work just as well, we can save patrons from getting scammed! This will require you to think like a scientist and experiment to create your own magical concoction.

This Curiosity Lab will take place at 11 a.m. and at 1 p.m. Tickets are $4 per child (includes general admission to the Museum). Limited tickets available, recommended for ages 8 and older.
