Event Description

Join us this summer on Sunday afternoons for our Summer Spotlight series! From 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., our PLAYologists will facilitate special activities that take a closer look at educational concepts within our museum. 

Topics will vary each week, taking a closer look into each subject through fun hands-on activities! 

  • Wind Tube Exploration (June 16) – Explore the wonders of wind by engineering an object that can withstand our wind tunnel!
  • Straw Connectors (June 23) – Can you build something as tall as you out of straws? Or build something you can crawl underneath? Let’s engineer with straws together!
  • Filtered Light (June 30) – In “Filtered Light,” participants discover how colored filters can help reveal more about an image. They can also make and study colorful images of their own.
  • Build a Moon Base Camp (July 7) – In this activity, learners use familiar building blocks and are prompted to build a base for humans to live and work on the Moon.

More details about activities in the second half of the summer will be coming soon! Activities are included with admission; free for members!
