Family Friendly Programs
Super Volcanoes Week: Dec 26-Jan 2
Do you want an eruption of family fun this winter break? All week we’ll be doing activities and crafts related to volcanoes. Activities include making model volcanoes complete with lava, volcanoes of the world scavenger hunts, and demos to show how volcanoes erupt in the ocean!
Volcano Models - Dec 26, 30
An activity appropriate for all ages, we’ll make simple volcanoes out of everyday materials that you can take home. We’ll even add some baking soda so that it becomes an erupting volcano! Our interpretive staff will take you through the steps of how volcanoes work, and show you how to experiment at home!
Volcano Paintings - Dec 27, 31
For the more artistic minded we’ll have a paint station set up so you can make your own visions come to life. Our staff will be there show examples of how volcanoes can look very different from one another, and will inspire young artists to come up with their artistic vision for their very own volcano!
Scavenger Hunts - Daily
Our Cosmic Courtyard gallery space will be turned into a volcano scavenger hunt! There are a variety of different volcanoes around the world, and also in our solar system. A booklet of clues will help you decipher where the volcanoes are located on Earth or on another world. Prizes will be given out to successful hunters!
Fantastic Volcano Demonstrations - Dec 28 , Jan 1
Our volcano experts are going to take things up a notch with some explosive demonstrations! They’ll build some large scale volcanoes that will simulate different eruptions including lava flows, exploding mountain tops, as well as rarely seen erupting oceanic volcanoes. Things might get messy!
Groovy Lava Lamps - Dec 29, Jan 2
Remember lava lamps? We’ll introduce your kids to this retro activity and help them build their own lava lamp that will simulate how volcano flow works. We’ll provide all the materials, you just bring the “peace and love, man”!
