Science Lab: Roly Poly Pets

August 26, 2019 | morning session 11:00 am - 11:45 am; afternoon session 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

Summer Workshops – We are offering exciting workshops this summer all about science, ecology, art and food. When each workshop is finished children will get to make a pin-on button showing what they learned. Children are encouraged to wear their buttons every time they come to the museum. For every 4 buttons collected, children will get $4.00 off a  purchase of $5.00 or more at the Museum gift shop.

Science Lab Workshops invite children and adults to get creative and explore concepts in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).  This workshop is designed for children ages 4 – 6 and their parent/caregiver.  There is a different workshop theme each week during the summer!

This week’s theme: Science Lab Roly Poly Pets – Did you know that Roly Poly bugs, otherwise known as Pill Bugs are not insects? They are actually crustaceans, and believe it or not, they breathe through gills. At this workshop children will get their own live Roly Poly and build a mini-habitat for their new pet.

Workshop Cost:  $7.00 per child, plus Museum admission.
