February is an exciting month with so many fun activities! On February 2 we will celebrate Groundhog Day by making shadows. For Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day we have art projects.

It is Black History Month so we will be highlighting the achievements of exceptional scientists and engineers including Astronaut Mae Jemison and Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.

On February 11 it is Women and Girls in Science Day and we will have hands-on activities for all our visitors.

National Engineers Week is February 19 to 25 and we will have maker challenges using the Design process - design, build, test and improve! And coming up in March we have Spring Break camps where campers can think about different careers and try them out. Does your kiddo want to be a chemist, entyomologist or engineer. We have something for everyone!

This Month at the Museum

Our February programming celebrates all the seasonal holidays as well as the international events that recognize people in the STEM industry.

We also have hands-on activities that bring the season to life. Children can learn about the earth's tilt, make a season wheel, create tree art, and make a frosty snowman!

Once Upon a Time...In the Jungle

Fairy Tale Ball

Our Fairy Tale Ball will be held on Saturday April 15. It is a wonderful night of enchantment for families and our major fundraiser. We are looking for sponsors and other helpers.

After enjoying family games and refreshments on the jungle floor, adults retreat to the lion's lair for drinks and dining. Tweens party with their peers at the second annual Tween Murder Mystery Dinner. Meanwhile, younger guests are entertained by our wild jungle staff. The evening culminates with families reuniting for dessert and dancing.

If you are able to help please complete the online sponsorship form.

For more information our sponsorship letter is here.

Our Museum Board President Monica Johnson would love to answers your ball questions.
