Family Science Day at Queens Botanical Garden!

Pizza Gardening, Guided Tours, Making Herbal Scents and More!

Join us at Queens Botanical Garden for a day of fun and science!  Explore our 39 acre garden and engage in fun science activities, including “creating a pizza garden” gardening full of herbs and spices, making herbal scents to take home, exploring compost critters and much more. Meet some of the Urban Advantage staff and educators, interact with other Urban Advantage schools and families and enjoy the various gardens at QBG including our farm, fragrance walk, green roof.

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.
