Join us for some science-related family fun over this long weekend! Enjoy activities in our education wing, a special display in Collections Cove, and some favorite Solution Studio challenges including weaving (back from our popular 2018 exhibit!) and several other activities.
You’ll find hands-on astronomy and nature themed activities throughout the museum, featuring everything from dung beetles to Audubon’s turkey.
Solution Studio Revisited
Scientists use creativity every day. Meet researchers from the University of Minnesota who are using their imagination to solve real challenges facing people and the planet.
In the Solution Studio, let your creativity run wild as you work to solve challenges inspired by cutting edge research. We provide the materials and tools, you bring the big ideas and a willingness to explore, create, experiment, and share!
