Super Science Saturday: Amazing Butterflies 

Celebrate the opening of Amazing Butterflies with Super Science! Explore the exhibition’s interactive maze, climb in a pupa pod, and ride the monarch monorail to learn all about butterflies. Afterwards flutter over to our Super Science stations, and take part in cool butterfly-themed activities!
Assemble a free butterfly glider, and try it out in our "Butterfly Gliding Range" in Botany Hall. Watch a butterfly migration video in the Earth Theater, and see live butterflies that the museum is cultivating from caterpillars in Discovery Basecamp.
The American Cancer Society will also hold an indoor Relay for Life. Participants can dedicate their walk to loved ones by coloring and hanging up a butterfly on the Lee B. Foster Overlook or earn a bead for each lap they walk around the museum.

Free with museum admission.
