Dates and Topics for Spring 2019
Join us as we invite some feathered friends to the center! Raptor Recovery will be out with some of their bird ambassadors. Find out about what makes a raptor, their lives and habitat, and overall awesomeness!
Insects: They’re creepy. They’re crawly. They’re raised on a farm right here in Nebraska. What?! We will get a visit from an actual real life mealworm wrangler! Learn about the lifecycle of the yellow mealworm (tenebrio molitor), uses for mealworms and their “by-products”, how to grow them, and why they are good for us! Take a quiz to test your mealworm knowledge, see if mealworm poop stinks, and get a look at the different life stages. Plus, don’t miss out on trying a snack of roasted mealworms! They taste like chicken. Just kidding….you be the judge!
March: April 6th (yeah we know)
Sometimes weekends don’t align like we want, but when looking at Rockets, the further into spring the better! So for our March Super Science Saturday, (on April 6th ) We will build, launch, (and then you get to keep) your own model rocket. Please be sure to sign up ahead of time. Due to Supplies and space, there will be limited space available.
April: SUNDAY 14th
One of our favorite yearly events, our Easter Eggstravaganza is a family fun filled celebration of spring. Face Painting, science labs, Egg drop, and Easter Egg Hunts for different ages. We hope to see you there!
Space & Science
This year is the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s first moon landing. We are going to have fun exploring the topic of space with so many fun hands on activities and awesome experiments.
