Earth Optimism Drive-in Theater

Pilar-Olivas (3)

Friday, March 5, 7 - 8 PM
Museum's North Parking Lot

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our physical and our social environments. What can we learn from these changes, and how can we adapt? Five local teens identified a world issue and a plan to help.

Join us for a free drive-in theater showcasing the two-minute videos that our teens have created for the national Earth Optimism competition and learn ways you can build a more sustainable future.

This project is supported by the Smithsonian Institution, in collaboration with the Earth Optimism initiative.

Pi Day Celebration

3/10/2021 - 3/17/2021
Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is observed on March 14 (3-14) since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three digits of π. The number for π is actually much longer than those first three digits—in fact, it goes on literally forever without repeating! Join us for a virtual celebration of Pi Day from March 10th to March 17th, 2021! To celebrate this mathematical phenomenon, check out our staff's favorite pie recipes, watch videos about both pie and pi, and download the materials list to create an art project as you follow along with a video to make art with pi at home!


Many areas of the Museum and Museum School were damaged due to water from broken pipes and sprinklers. Please help us recover.
