Family Science Day at Staten Island Zoo

This year our event will focus on celebrating indigenous cultures, investigating native plant and animal species, and developing a deeper connection to the natural world around us through hands-on activities, crafts, games, and more.

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 our museums, gardens and zoos. Each of our eight UA institutions hosts a Family Science Day during the month of October. 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.
