Scientist in the Spotlight event this month

Join us Saturday, November 12 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Activities are designed for family members of all ages.

Aquatic biology

Stop by and learn about some of the different things that could be as close as the nearest puddle or pond. Jane Clements will help answer the questions: What's living in your water? and Do you want to get them out?

Mechanical engineering

During that same time you can visit with Isaac Salazar, a mechanical engineer, who will be here to talk about how experimental variables can be used to improve science. If that’s not enough, you can also make and fly a paper helicopter. (Yes, if you make one you can take it home with you to continue the fun and learning.)

Scientist in the SpotlightJoin us every second Saturday of the month for Scientist in the Spotlight, a program featuring scientists who have been certified for public outreach through the Museum’s Scientist Ambassador Academy. These scientists will talk with Museum visitors for a couple of hours about their favorite science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) subject. Conversations are intended for all ages and include interactive hands-on activities that make learning easy and fun. Learn more about the Scientist Ambassador academy.
