Virtual Adventures with the Museum – Investigate Your Backyard

  • Tuesday, July 28, 2020
  • 9:30am - 12:00pm

New interactive offering: Have you ever wondered what animals, insects or trees can be found around you? NCMNS instructors will guide participants through an in-depth look at the habitats found in the North Carolina Piedmont. Learn how to use scientific tools to dissect a cocoon, explore how honeybees build their hives and mimic how trees release their seeds to fly.

Each live program will come with an Adventure Kit that allows children to participate whether you live in an urban, suburban or rural environment. Activities are designed to be hands-on and encourage the development of skills in scientific thinking. Each kit comes with everything the child will need to participate in the activities and includes natural objects that children can continue to explore long after the program is over.

Grade Level: Rising 4th–6th grade in the upcoming 2020/2021 school year.

Session Day 1:  Tuesday, July 28 @ 9:30am – 12:00pm
