Repeats every day until Fri Jul 17 2020


Online via Zoom

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).
