Story Book Science - Bright Star

Story Book Science - Bright Star

Saturday, April 9
KU Natural History Museum, Dyche Hall

Animals travel throughout the desert, but what things do they see? What challenges might they face? Join museum staff for Story Book Science and learn more about the living things of the Sonoran Desert! The KU Natural History Museum’s Education Coordinator, Colleen MacGilvray, will read Bright Star by Yuyi Morales on Saturday, April 9.

During the event, explore topics from the book with specimens and hands-on activities with the museum’s Public Education team. Museum guests can investigate adaptations of desert animals and study desert specimens up-close at our specimen table, in addition to those on display in the Panorama!

Readings will take place at 10:30am and 11:30am. Specimens and activities are available between 10:30am and 12:00pm. The reading and activities are targeted towards children between the ages of 4 and 8 and their adults, although all are welcome! NOTE: At least one adult must be present with children throughout the duration of the reading.

This is a free, in-person event.
