First Steps in Science Weekends in September

September 7 @ 10:00 am 5:00 pm

Saturdays: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Sundays: 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Every journey begins with a single, first step! Discover the basic steps of STEM concepts and how they lead to big inventions. Learn about STEM professionals and how their great ideas were first born!

  • Exhibits, Shows and Demos: Build and test simple machines, learn about coding with LEGO® bricks and DUPLO® blocks and experience virtual reality and artificial intelligence.
  • Animal Encounters: Meet our resident animals and discover what happens when they take their first steps!
  • Watch an IMAX on the GIANT Screen: Great Bear Rainforest, Serengeti, Legend of the Enchanted Reef and more!
  • Career Connections: Step into the careers of professionals in STEM, such as computer science and engineering.

Just for early learners (ages 0-6): Young explorers can learn the ABCs of coding with basic algorithms and sequencing, unleash your creativity as you build flying objects and experiment with various materials to see how they glide through the air.

Cost: Included with Museum admission.
