Family Science Days

Skull Investigation, Guided Tours, Topography Map, Insects under microscopes!

Join us at our Urban Advantage institutions for our annual Family Science Day events!  Each of our eight UA institutions hosts a Family Science Day during the month of October. Family Science Day is open house in which families can experience fun and engaging science activities, meet some of the Urban Advantage staff and educators, interact with other Urban Advantage schools and families and enjoy the amazing exhibits and sights at our Urban Advantage zoos, gardens and museums.

Family Science Days serve as a kickoff to our Urban Advantage program year, and is meant to get our schools, students and families excited about science and to create a memorable experience at the museum. It is our hope that Family Science Day will spark student interest in science and inspire them to return to our institutions on their own.
