Summer Science Lab

Science Lab: Helicopters June 28, 2018 | morning session 11:00 am - 11:45 am; afternoon session 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm
Science Lab: Helicopters
June 28, 2018 | morning session 11:00 am - 11:45 am; afternoon session 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

Science Lab Workshops invite children and adults to get creative and explore 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: Helicopter Lab – Up, up and away!  This week we’re making our own rubber band-powered helicopter toys.  These fun toys fly up to 50 feet into the air and are a great way to learn about the principles of flight.

Workshop Cost:  $9 per child, plus museum admission.
