Amazon Presents Be the Scientist

This monthly event is free for program participants; MOST admission fees apply to parents and guardians.

This program runs on the last Saturday of every month from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm. For children grades K-8.

Be the Scientist allows visitors to learn about and explore the activities of a different scientist (discipline) each month. From marine biology to computer programming and beyond, the last Saturday of the month is a time for local STEM practitioners, faculty, and museum visitors to come together and explore new careers and frontiers in science and technology. Participants in this no-cost program are welcome to explore the museum after visiting the stations.

Program Stations:

  1. LEARN – At this station, scientists and other professionals in the field will conduct
    demonstrations, talk with visitors about their careers and day to day activities, and answer
    questions about the discipline.
  2. ENGAGE – Visitors will engage in hands-on activities that simulate the work of professionals in
    that discipline.
  3. EXPLORE – Using what they have discovered from the LEARN and ENGAGE stations, visitors will
    explore the variety of opportunities in the field, visit relevant exhibits in the MOST, and choose
    from a variety of take-home materials to extend the exploration.
