Giants of Science

October 12-15, 2017

From Rachel Carson and Nikola Tesla to Albert Einstein and Jane Goodall, the Boonshoft Museum's educators are inspired by great minds – and they want to share their excitement with YOU!

Join us for a salute to scientists, where all public programs are dedicated to one of of sixteen "giants of science" whose ground-breaking work increased our understanding of the world around us.

Please note that all programs will vary by day and activities will be incorporated into regular Museum programming. Options may include such activities as: painting with gravity, glowing minerals, dinosaur bone assembly, paper airplane design, and even Raspberry Pi Tic Tac Toe (and nope, this is not a snack!)
