Youth ages 5 to 12 can learn what it’s like to do real scientific work—using the same tools and techniques museum researchers use—at the Gilb Museum of Arcadia Heritage in July by joining the Summer Enrichment Program. Packed with activities, demonstrations, and an up-close look at some cool highlights from the Gilb Museum artifacts collection, each week is a crash course in one of the many fields of science and history explored at the Museum.
Every Friday in July, from 10 a.m. to noon and from 1-3 p.m., kids will enjoy a new science adventure: July 5 (naturalist); July 12 (archaeologist); July 19 (paleontologist); and July 26 (historian).
Adult supervision is required. While this program is not for groups, parents or caregivers are welcome to enjoy the programs with their children.
