Senior Science @ Museum of Coastal Carolina
Sep 19 @ 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.

Fun with Dash and Dot @ Museum of Coastal Carolina
Sep 21 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join Maria and Tom Knapik as they explore basic coding with their robot friends Dash and Dot. Coding and programming are critical skills for enabling many of the devices we use every day. Dash and Dot are real robots that respond to voice, navigating objects, dancing and singing. This interactive activity will utilize the apps Wonder, Go and Path to control Dash and Dot and get a better understanding of how coding and programming work.

Budding Scientists @ Museum of Coastal Carolina
Sep 28 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Kimberly Belfer, the museum’s education coordinator, has some fun planned for young explorers who like to dig in the dirt and use their imaginations when playing with rocks, twigs, and sticks. In these programs, kids will get to play and learn the science of our local ecosystems. They’ll explore science, make crafts to take home, and perform experiments, all designed to help young kids learn, play, and grow. Each month features a different topic and hands-on activity:
September 28 — Amazing Animals — Learn about an animal specific to the coastal area.
October 26 — Creepy Lab — Conduct a Halloween-themed chemistry experiment.
November 30 — Super Saturday Exciting Ecosystems — Learn about an ecosystem that is represented at the museum.
December 28 — Fantastic Physics — Learn about the physical properties of water and Earth.
