Science Detectives – Online! | Owls: Our Nocturnal Neighbors

  • Wednesday, November 18, 2020

Science Detectives Owls

New interactive offering for children 8–10 years old:  Whooooo is there? Join us as we learn about our favorite nocturnal birds of prey — owls! Together with a Museum instructor, participants will learn about some of the most common owl species, including how to identify their calls, what they eat and what other clues they may leave behind. In a highlight of the class, participants will get to dissect their own owl pellet while following along with their instructor. 

Each live program will come with an interactive kit that contains materials for the child  to use during the class. All activities encourage the development of skills in scientific observation and thinking.
