Each month, we present focused hands-on activities related to a special theme. Come in from 1pm to 4pm to enjoy these activities, curated for learners ages 6+ and included with admission.
Admission is $10 for ages 3+, and free for annual MESS Hall members.
September 28, 2019 | Weather | Build and test tools for measuring the weather. Investigate what causes our changing environment.
October 19, 2019 | Fossil Day | What lies below the surface? Join us for a fossil hunting workshop (register online) and get a firsthand look at what they can tell us about the past.
November 11, 2019 | Space | The planets have aligned to make this Curiosity Day an out of this world experience. We will begin early with a chance to view a rare Mercury transit of the sun (next occurring in our area in 2049). Inside, learn more about our solar system, investigate how scientists are finding planets outside our solar system, and imagine the life that might be there.
Joining us is Mr. Cory Stone, former curator at the Gene Roddenberry Planetarium in El Paso, TX and NASA Science Subject Matter Expert.
