One Saturday a month, engage in authentic science and inquiry learning…and have a lot of fun while doing so!
2 p.m. - 4 p.m., free with museum admission, registration requested
Chemistry is everywhere! From our eyes to our iPods, chemistry makes it happen. You and your kids can get to know some of the scientists from the University of Minnesota Department of Chemistry and learn some basics of chemistry. Watch some wild and fun experiments and even try a few of your own. A special focus will be on food and other household items, with some experiments budding young chemists can perfect on their own at home. As a treat, enjoy freshly made liquid nitrogen ice cream!
To Register: Please call (612) 626-9660 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot. Please include the ages of the children you are registering, note any food allergies (specifically dairy) and also your contact information.

Most Saturday with a Scientist activities are free with museum admission. Some optional activities may have additional costs to cover supplies and special guests.
