Did you get to make your valentine? Enjoy the pictures!
In the Sculpture Court many tables were set up (–stations, really) so that our visitors could practice experiements, solve puzzles, and look at things in new and intresting ways.
Below we are happy to share some photographs of the day, and we thank all of the families, and our volunteers, for making the day so fun.
If you have any questions about the projects you see here, please contact the Education Division at the Museum of Texas Tech University, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to generous funding from the Helen Jones Foundation, the Education Division has been able to purchase many supplies, tools, and kits that can help our visitors learn and discover more about the world that we live in. People of all ages really enjoyed using several different kinds of connective sets of parts, allowing them to make crazy cars, DNA chains, imaginative reptiles, and more.
We planned lots of experiments that were fun, stinky, gross, etc….
The microscope was VERY popular…
Thank you for visiting. We hope that you can join us on December 3, Saturday,
from 1 – 4 for Holiday Workshop at the Museum.
You can make several holiday themed prizes, great for gifts or decorating for your winter holiday.
Everything is free and you get to keep and take home what you make!
(Santa and cookies will be there, too!)
For this month’s Bedtime @ The Museum we read How Do Dinosaurs Go To School? and made a Triceratops mask. Since everyone was getting ready to go back to school next week, we thought this was an excellent bedtime book!
This bedtime was a ROARIN’ good time! Join us next month for Astronaut Handbook!

This Toddler Tuesday was spent learning all about how to keep our bodies healthy and happy. We learned about which foods belong in each food group, what kinds of foods to fill our plates up with, and even did some fun exercises!
We started by learning a little about the human skeleton and all our body parts by singing “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes”:
Next, we learned what foods are healthy to eat, and which foods to stay away from.
Then, Brittany taught us which foods belong in the different food groups, and what types of foods we should put on our dinner plates.
Lastly, we headed outside to learn how exercise can keep us healthy. We raced through an obstacle course to get our heart rates up!
We had a great time this Tuesday learning all about healthy bodies. We hope to see everyone back next month for a morning learning all about animals!
