Eco Lab: Terrariums

July 9, 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!

This week’s theme: Terrariums   At this workshop we’ll learn about living things and how they are connected. We will create our own little ecosystems in jars. Complete with living moss and activated charcoal, these terrariums should stay green for a long time! Bring home an eco-system in a jar.

Cost: $10.00 materials fee per child plus Museum admission. Bring in your jar to upcycle and pay only $5. (Half gallon or quart sizes recommended.)
