Senior Science @ Museum of Coastal Carolina
Oct 24 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Challenge yourself to build a marble out of Legos. Use chemistry to understand the science behind dyes. Build bird feeders and home decor items with seashells and driftwood. These are just some of the activities in our new Senior Science programs on Thursdays at 11:00 with Kimberly Belfer, the museum’s education coordinator. These programs are designed for seniors who would like to explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) activities on a more advanced level, including some hands-on activities with robotics.
