Sometimes science needs to be precise- but what’s wrong with a little mess along the way? Join us for a messy month filled with slime, mud and an ooey-gooey good time!
- Exhibits, Shows and Demos: Step into MODS’ Makerspace Science Lab! Create your own mud mix and put it under a microscope to discover its contents. Play with all types of slime and find out what makes them stretch, stick and splatter!
- Animal Encounters: Meet our resident animals and learn what we do when they make a mess!
- Watch an IMAX on the GIANT Screen: Dino Dana, Animal Kingdom and more!
- Career Connections: Channel your inner chemist to create sticky concoctions and see how animal handlers deal with animal droppings.
Just for early learners (ages 0-6): Discover a property that is both a liquid and solid at the same time depending on the force that is used. Get hands-on with the peat from the Everglades and discover what can be found within. Feel the differences of various types of slime.
