Did you know you can find us out and about in the community? Look for museum staff and science-based activities at community events such as:
Museum on the Road
A collection of specimens, touchable items, and related science crafts available on site at local fairs and festivals, special events, and other institution's programs. We can also create content to meet the event's theme.
Museum staff “pop up” in such places as malls, a local park, or even on the sidewalk with hands-on demonstrations and mini-experiments to engage passersby in science.
Meet researchers in a variety of fields who are part of our Science Communication Fellows program. Researchers bring fun hands-on activities and information on their cutting edge research.
Science Cafés provide an opportunity for audiences to discuss current science topics with experts in an informal setting. These take place at Conor O’Neill’s Traditional Irish Pub.
Three-part series of science workshops held in local libraries and built around a yearly theme. Museum staff develop between four and six stations for each workshop, and families explore science together while independently working through each station at their own pace.
Science for Tomorrow is a career outreach program that goes beyond "STEM"—Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math—as a catchphrase to introduce middle schoolers to real scientists and the work they do.
The outreach team is always looking for new ways to connect with people outside of the museum. If you have an event that might be a good fit, email Educational Outreach Manager Jeanna Fox at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the museum office at 734-764-0478.
