Eco Lab: Solar Energy

July 16, 2019 | 11:00 am and 2:00 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.

Eco Lab Workshops invite children and adults to get creative and learn about ecology 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!

Solar Energy  This workshop is all about the sun! Children will use a solar-scope, play with a solar-powered car, and make their own UV detectors. Children will also make a solar oven to use to try to melt a marshmallow.

Cost: $5.00 materials fee per child plus Museum admission.
