Connecticut Science Center, Workshop

April 23 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 11:00 am, repeating until April 24, 2022

We’ve taken our popular at-home STEM in a Box program and brought it into the Connecticut Science Center as a LIVE hands-on workshop experience. You and your family members will join our STEM education team for a 90-minute hands-on activity workshop complete with enhanced projects and materials. After the Workshop, you will take home your creation and all extra materials so you can continue experimenting on your own. Plus, you and your family will get to enjoy the remainder of the day having fun exploring more than 165 exhibits here in the Science Center.

In celebration of DNA Days, we are going to put you into the shoes of a Geneticist to help the Science Center team analyze genes from actual DNA. When finished, you’ll be leaving with real science equipment to conduct your own strawberry DNA extraction and continue the exploration at home.
