The Science of Skeletons Is More Fun Than Spooky

Skulls and TeethUsing real and simulated skulls and bones, children ages 5-11 can discover secrets that skeletons unlock. In addition to making a glow-in-the-dark skeleton to take home, budding scientists learn more than which bone is connected to which. Discover the scaffolding that a skeleton provides all vertebrates. Space is still available for the one-hour program on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022, at 1 p.m. The fee is $10 per child. For children under 10 years of age, an adult must accompany the child in the program.
