Backyard Bash!

August 29, 10:00am - 3:00pm

Backyard Bash

Join us to soak up that last bit of summer at our backyard bash! Check out some special summer science experiments, maker activities, games, and live science shows, all set up outside to allow for easy social distancing and tons of outdoor fun. Design and launch your own rocket, build and test a tiny boat, make some GIANT bubbles, and learn how to tye-dye with our Maker Space educators! We’ll also have a self-guided nature scavenger hunt and show you how you can contribute to ongoing scientific research in your own backyard. Special Live Science presentations will occur at 1pm and 3pm outdoors as well!

Access to the bash will be included with your general admission ticket for the day.
