Family Science Workshops: What is a Scientist?

Why For?

via morguefile.com

The N.M. Museum of Natural History and Science asks, “What Is a Scientist?” this weekend at their new family workshop. To answer that question, one would need to weigh a sample of “scientist,” expose it to various environmental changes, test its component parts, observe the results and publish them for peer review. Or you could just join museum educators as they explore how people use the scientific method every day in their normal lives. This workshop will teach 2-9 year-olds (and their adult companions) how to investigate the everyday by asking questions and being observant. Choose from two workshops: one starting at 11am, and one at 1pm this Sunday, Feb. 5. A donation of $4 at the door is suggested. (Joshua Lee)

Families explore how people operate as scientists every day by noticing things, asking questions, gathering information, testing and problem solving.

Science workshops for 2-9 year olds AND adult companions.  This is an exciting opportunity for families to delve in to science together through hands-on investigations.   Choose to attend one of our two sessions of this great event:  11am-12pm or 1pm-2pm.

Join Museum educators as we explore what it means to engage in the process of science in the workshop, “What is a Scientist?”.  Explore how people operate as scientists every day by noticing things, asking questions, gathering information, testing and problem solving.  Each activity, whether observing bugs or testing paper bridge designs, reflects a scientific practice designed to help participants see themselves as scientists and to embrace the idea that science is everywhere!

The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science is a partner site with the Franklin Institute in an NSF grant funded program, “LEAP into Science”, focusing on joining science education and literacy together in fun and engaging investigations for the youngest learners and this adult companions.  This workshop is one of many developed by the Franklin Institute.
