Join us at the Boonshoft Museum and rediscover the enjoyment of science! On Saturday, May 18, 2019, from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm, the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery presents another fun Super Science Saturday. Themed Moon Mission, the focus of the day celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon.
Explore the cosmos with us and learn about the historic lunar landing of July 20, 1969. Attend the exciting rocketry show in the Science Theater and learn about the scientific advances that turned a presidential desire for lunar exploration into a real out-of-this-world historic event. Another interesting space-oriented experience on the days schedule is the Gravity program held in the Hands-on Lab.
Super Science Saturday is one of four free-admission days the Museum hosts for the greater Dayton community throughout the year. Visitors have come to look forward to the interesting mix of educational talks, science theater presentations, hands-on experiments, live animal events, and more.
“Kids get a real kick out of the challenging games and activities available at Super Science Saturday,” said Boonshoft Museum VP of Education, Dawn Kirchner. “Their young minds become caught-up in discovery as their curiosity guides them from experience to experience.”
Regular Museum programming continues as scheduled and Discovery Zoo animal ambassadors will tour the building, greeting guests throughout the day.
There will be food-truck vendors stationed outside the doors, ready to cater to the appetites of science lovers at reasonable prices.
