Description:

Calling all Earth lovers!

Come in for a special day spent celebrating and learning all about the fantastic planet we call home. From peeking at organisms too small to see with the naked eye to discovering how gravity impacts even the BIGGEST mountains, this special day will be sure spread the love! Activities and demonstrations included with general admission.

Activities:

  • SCOPE IT OUT
    Microscopes are a great a tool that scientists use to take a closer look at plants, animals and other organisms too small to see with our naked eye that might be hiding secrets. Learn how to properly use a microscope while checking to see what you can discover on our slides!
     
  • ROCKS... ROCK!
    Rough to smooth, and everything in between. We'll explore how cool rocks really are while getting up close and personal with rocks from a real volcano!
     
  • A DROP IN THE BUCKET
    Water is everywhere... but it doesn't mean we have access to all of it. Discover why water conservation is so important and learn more about the water we find here on Earth.

  • RECYCLE RELAY
    Think you're the "MVP" of trash basketball? Here is your chance to defend your title... while helping recycle! See if you can dunk the right recyclable in the correct basket.

  • POLLINATOR POWER
    It’s a bird... it’s a plane… no, it’s a bat! Yep... bats are pollinators too! Come discover what other amazing creatures are in the "Pollinator Power" group. 

  • PAPER MOUNTAINS
    The Force (of Gravity) is strong with this one. Earth has a strong gravitational pull. So strong, in fact, that it sometimes pulls and changes mountains and rivers. Strap on your NASA suit and learn what happens when we act as gravity and turn the tides.
