Dig into Earth Science with this virtual museum experience. Explore volcanoes, crystals, and fossils! During the live Zoom sessions, experiment with “lava,” solve a sandy mystery, and see real museum specimens. Continue your investigations at home as you grow crystals, collect rocks, and make your own fossils! A small packet of special materials will be sent to your home to help with your discoveries.
Additional supplies needed: An empty clear plastic jar with a lid (for example, a cleaned peanut butter or mayonnaise jar), a handful of small rocks (will be used for an activity and may get damaged), a box of small paper cups (like Dixie cups), borax (usually sold near the laundry detergent in grocery stores), Play-Doh, vinegar, baking soda, construction paper, scissors, disposable spoons (optional), and craft paint (optional).
