Science Explorations: BONES

Please note: all programs and events will not be held during the Museum’s closure. Print Page
Tuesday, July 16, 2019 - 10:00am to 11:50am
6 and up

Science Explorations happen throughout the day. Check the TODAY sign in the Museum lobby for hours. At other times enjoy self-guided discovery boxes.

You have 206 of them. Mice have more. Chickens have fewer, and cows are about the same. What are they? Bones!  Learn how many bones are in just one of your hands; compare the ribs of a cat, a snake and a water buffalo; and see what a human skull looks like. Develop math and science skills as you count, observe, describe and compare.
