Messy Science Weekends in August

August 3 @ 10:00 am 5:00 pm

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

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: Slide into MODS’ Makerspace Science Lab to 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): Young scientists can discover a property that is both a liquid and solid depending on the force that is used, get hands-on with real peat from the Everglades and feel the difference between various types of slime.

Cost: Included with Museum admission.
