Super Science Saturday: Nature’s Palette
March 11, 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
At the Museum
Investigate the patterns, shapes, and colors all around us. Use this inspiration to create artwork in your own sketchbook (while supplies last). Explore the dazzling spectrum that helps insects, mammals and many other animals thrive in their environments. See if you can find where Waldo, the Jackson’s chameleon, and Bluey, the blue-tongued skink, the museum’s newest animal ambassadors are hiding inside an interactive diorama. Fold and press your own origami flowers, learn how seeds can come together to create a masterpiece, and discover how UV light can illuminate hidden properties of minerals. Learn how people from many different cultures draw meaning from color, from ancient Egypt to the present day.
We are pleased to partner with Council of Three Rivers American Indian Center (COTRAIC) on this event. Native Americans will demonstrate traditional and Intertribal dances and songs around 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. Join in for a social dance or two!
Super Science Saturdays are sponsored by PA Cyber and Tender Care Learning Centers, a proud partner of Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.
