Stories of Science
Join us in our museum EVERY SATURDAY for a family-friendly program that highlights the many strange and surprising stories from the history of science!
Our fun, interactive activities are designed for science lovers of all ages. Take an up-close look at interesting items in our handling collection. Stop by our Object Explorer touch table to learn about the science behind everyday items like ice cube trays and LED light bulbs. Chat with our experienced Gallery Guides to find out more about the people responsible for the science embedded in our daily lives.
During your visit, you can also check out our themed “drop-in” tours at 11:30am and 2pm.
Stories of Science takes place weekly on Saturdays. Admission is free and reservations are not required.
Historians and social scientists of science, technology, and medicine discuss their collaborative work to develop and deploy “embedded connections” in the humanities and STEM fields.
In this course Roger Turner will show how the Nobel Prize can be an entry point for more inclusive stories about the people who work in science.
Join us for a night of “whodunits” and solve a historical forensics murder mystery.
