Science in the Sun

The Pensacola MESS Hall will present Science in the Sun during the month of November. This series of events, held in parks across our community, will each feature a 45 minute interactive science show led by MESS Hall educators. The performances will be geared toward learners in elementary school and their families. 

Two different topics will be presented on different dates. The first, the Air Show, will be an exploration of the force of air and the components of flight. The second, Robotics Unplugged, engages learners in a range of scientific issues necessary to control a robot.

The shows are scheduled to be held at 2 PM at the following venues, weather permitting:

  1. Nov 7 | Shoreline Park
    800 Shoreline Dr, Gulf Breeze
  2. Nov 8 | Bayview Park
    2001 W Lloyd St
  3. Nov 14 | Corrine Jones Park
    620 W Government St, Pensacola
  4. Nov 15 | Carver Park

These shows are a part of what learners would experience on a field trip to the MESS Hall. With the loss of field trips from the pandemic, the MESS Hall is eager to inspire curiosity about science by delivering these free shows to the public. In addition, attendees at the programs who provide contact information will also be entered for a chance to win a Flex Pass to the MESS Hall which provides 4 people free admission to the museum for six months. 

These shows are supported in part by a grant from Voya Foundation.
