Exploring Egypotology a great hit!

Last night, we kicked off our Wow, It's Wednesday! programs with Having Fun with Pyramids and Pharaohs with Paulette Morin. All who came, enjoyed learning about artifacts, mummification and even how to dance like an Egyptian. Below are a few pictures from the night.

Children were able to try on and examine the artifact reproductions up close!


Children and Adults alike enjoyed learning how to dance like an Egyptian!

The Museum of Science is Back - With Bridges!

The Museum of Science is coming back again with a great NEW program. Join us for

A World of Bridges: An Engineering Tale


Travel around the world and throughout history
with this interactive adventure. A read-aloud
story introduces best friends Alicia and Miguel
as they try to build a bridge across the stream
separating their homes. The audience will learn
how other cultures faced such challenges, and
solve the problem with a hands-on engineering
activity. For the finale, the group will construct a
Roman Arch Bridge big enough to walk over.

This program is designed for ages 4 - 10. 

ALL children must be accompanied by an adult. 

There are four sessions: 11:20 AM, 12:30 PM, 2:00 PM and 3:10 PM. 

Please sign up for one session only. 

Sign up must be done in person, in the Children's Room.
