Science Day at MoTTU

 On Saturday, November 5, we had a day of fun and exploration!

 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, museum.education@ttu.edu.

"What is this and where does it go?"

We had kids of all ages join us for Science Day...

"Wow! Excellent job building that, uh...that tower-thing (what is it?)"

"Ah, yes...the old Exploding Lava Trick!"

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….

    Our volunteers had fun and helped us have fun, too….

The microscope was VERY popular…

“Oh, wow, that is cool!!”

“How does it do that?!”

"Goggles on for safety!"

   “I don’t know where that part goes, hmm….”

           

"I made a bubble and can hold it in my hand!"

Tall or short, anyone can make bubbles!

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!)
