Join a Natural Sciences Classroom every Tuesday at 11am for a fun, interactive experience with Museum experts! All ages are welcome, but we recommend this program for ages 8 and above. Parents are invited to participate with their children during the program.

We will use Zoom to connect with participants. Programs may be recorded for quality assurance purposes. Many of these topics are available to schedule for an organized group.
