Family Science Day at the Bronx Zoo!

Tour of Congo, Bio-Facts, Live Ambassador Animals, and More!

Join us at the Bronx Zoo for a day of fun, science, and adventure! Family Science Day is an open house, in which families can engage in exciting activities here at the zoo! You can meet live animal ambassadors  in our Africa Lab Classroom and participate in fun activities in our Congo Classroom! The activities can range from examining various animal bio-facts, uncovering animal mysteries and learning about conservation! You can also meet some of the Urban Advantage staff and educators, interact with other Urban Advantage schools and families, and enjoy the sights and exhibits at the Bronx Zoo!

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.
