Location: MDWFP's Mississippi Museum of Natural Science

County: Hinds

For more information please contact the Visitor Information Specialist at 601-576-6000 or by email at .

Want to learn more about science as a family? Join us at the museum to experience science in fun, hands-on ways. Play with Robots, meet Mississippi wildlife, experiment with non-newtonian fluids (kinetic sand!), see STEM/STEAM demos, develop your mind with crazy brain teasers, and more! Food vendors will be on site.

This is a great way for families with elementary and middle school aged children to begin the new year. If you want to learn more about supporting your child’s interest in the sciences, then this event is for you.

Part of the fun is registering to win a door prize complete with a solar mechanics kit, Science Magic experiment book, and a few other useful items. Must be present to win.

Food will be available for purchase and you might want to bring some money to get your face painted by the wonderful Painted Faces by Emily Schmidt. Cost for face painting is $5-$7.

Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for youth (doesn't include food or face painting).
