Earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, and more—they’ve all changed life on our planet over and over again. Discover how people and ecosystems have responded to extreme events throughout geologic time. Construct model lava flows, asteroid impacts, and volcanoes. Build a model city and put it to the test with our mega-quake-tsunami challenge on Friday.

We’ve received a mysterious message from space—help us decode the transmission! Travel into the solar system and beyond as we trace the communication back to the senders. Compare Earth’s most extreme climates to distant planets’ and moons’, and determine what makes a hunk of space rock habitable. Plus, compete in a friendly design challenge as you craft a model rocket to travel to those far off celestial bodies.

Nature builds things up and tears them down—and so can you! Explore how humans and animals construct homes, buildings, and dens. Construct a classroom compost bin to delve into decomposition, and conduct an experiment to test the strength of the pyramids. Throughout the week, you’ll undertake a habitat design challenge using only naturally available resources, and we’ll visit Fallingwater to gain inspiration from an architectural masterpiece.
Activity fee: $50
Field trip day to Fallingwater: Museum pick-up at 6:30 p.m.
