March over to the DCM for some fun!
Cloudy with a chance of snow? How about sunny with a guaranteed burst of fun? The forecast is bright as we dive into the science behind weather all month long at the Delaware Children’s Museum (DCM).
Everyday kids can explore hands-on, weather-related experiments and demonstrations that range from learning how tornadoes form to discovering what wind can do for sustainable energy. Different programs throughout the month include investigating the difference between rain, sleet, hail, and snow in “Precipitation Stations,” and designing a rain gauge to track precipitation near your neighborhood; learning about “Twisting Tornadoes” and making your own tornado in a jar; finding out how wind can be used for energy during “Wondrous Winds;” and exploring our four seasons during “Seasonal Temperatures”.
On the second weekend of every month, join us for our monthly “Try Science” series where kids can learn about different types of science careers. This month, on Saturday and Sunday, March 14 and 15, we’ll learn what it takes to “Be a Space Scientist” as we take a closer look at the work of astronauts, what tasks they perform, and discover how they eat, cry, and drink in space. After exploring the wonders of outer space, mark your calendars for the next edition of “Junior Engineers” on Saturday and Sunday, March 28 and 29. Learn what it takes to "Be a Robotics Engineer," make your own “bristle bot” out of a toothbrush, and design your own recycled robot friend!
