KUNHM Discovery Day Science Kit Distribution

KUNHM Discovery Day Science Kit Distribution

Sun., March 21
Outside the KU Natural History Museum

The KU Natural History Museum will be distributing a limited number of free Science Kits for our Discovery Day: Amazing Adaptations on March 28! Kits will be given out this Sunday, March 21 from 12pm-4pm, outside of the KU Natural History Museum! You'll get materials for 7 great activities for Discovery Day, including a DIY Spraying Bombardier Beetle activity, Fly Eye Glasses and more!

The kits are not required to enjoy our online programs, but will provide all materials a child might need for doing our activities at home. Information on how you can pick up the kit for your household is below. Remember to mask up when you pick up your kit at the KU Natural History Museum.

On Sunday, March 21, 12pm through 4pm or until we run out, come to the KU Natural History Museum at Dyche Hall, 1345 Jayhawk Boulevard. Our staff will be following COVID-19 recommended protocols, including wearing masks. We ask that participants picking up kits also follow protocols, including wearing masks when picking up kits. Households can get up to 2 kits total. We have drive-up and walk-up options:

Museum staff will direct you to pull your car up to a designated spot on Jayhawk Boulevard in front of the north entrance of the museum (closest to the KU Memorial Union). Then they’ll give you a kit containing all materials needed for our Discovery Day: Amazing Adaptations, taking place on March 28. Discovery Day videos remain online too, so if you can't follow along on the day of the event, you can still do science with us when it's convenient for your young scientist!

You can walk up to the museum to pick up a kit, too! Museum staff will direct you to the pick-up location while maintaining a 6-foot distance between you and others.
