Explore the world around you at All Systems Earth
Here are just a few of the experiences planned for All Systems Earth:
- Wild Weather: Learn about cloud formation and static electricity.
- Pollinators and Decomposers: Learn about the smallest of creatures that have the biggest jobs.
- Recycling: Get hands-on to learn how you can help protect the environment.
- Rocks and Fossils: Get up close with specimens from the Museum’s collection to learn more about the rock cycle and how fossils are made.
All Systems Earth will feature a special afternoon just for homeschoolers on April 20 from 1:30 – 4 PM. Homeschool students will work together during Operation Oil Spill Clean-Up to explore how scientists clean up oil spills to help save wildlife, and they will get creative with recycled materials to make their own seedling pods.
A special addition to this year’s All Systems Earth activities is Extreme Weather on April 22 from 10 AM – 4 PM presented by the Museum’s Research and Learning Center. Researchers from area universities along with NOAA meteorologist, Dennis Cain, will teach guests about awareness, preparation and communication for extreme weather in North Texas.
