Saturday Science

The second Saturday of every month, we focus on a different science-related theme! The program includes a two-hour, hands-on class followed by a show at the Mayborn Science Theater.

Upcoming classes

Young Naturalist (Age 6-12)
Learn how to apply the scientific method while investigating the science behind aquatic ecosystems, natural resources, the food chain and endangered species. Build an "insect zoo," a birdbath and terrarium. Have fun while satisfying the requirements for the Girl Scout’s junior animal habitats badge, Cub Scout’s wildlife conservation awards for belt loop and academic pin and the Webelo naturalist skill award. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a snack. Carroll Beckom is an educational program assistant at the Mayborn Science Theater. (1 meeting)
Mar 11 SAT     1-4 pm     Cost/$39

Rocket Science (Age 6-12)
Three, two, one... blastoff!  Learn all about rockets, including where they were invented, what gives them thrust, how they blast off and how to build your own model rockets to take home. Carroll Beckom (see Young Naturalist). (1 meeting)
Apr 8    SAT     1-4 pm        Cost/$39

Weather Phenomena (Age 6-12)
Join us as we take a trip through the weather phenomena on our planet and others in our solar system. As we take this journey, we will create our very own Texas tornados, sweet snowflakes and more hands-on activities as we venture through each unique type of weather on our planet and others. Wear clothing you can get dirty in because the unexpected rain storms may cause a little mud! Carroll Beckom (see Young Naturalist). (1 meeting)
May 13    SAT     1-4 pm        Cost/$39
