Super Science Saturday: Colorama

Saturday, August 18, 2018, 10:00am - 4:00pm

As students prepare to head back into the classroom, give them a boost with this day full of learning about color! Discover why leaves change color before falling from the trees, explore what colors can tell us about chemical reactions, and even learn how different cultures from around the world have been inspired by the colors found in nature.

Admission to Super Science Saturday events is free to the public.

Get a little, give a little… In honor of this free day, the Museum will accept school supply donations for Crayons to Classrooms during the Super Science Saturday event. Help a student in need start the year off on the right foot by donating new pens, pencils, notebook paper, scissors, art supplies, and more!
