Alabama Museum of Natural History to host space-themed family night
This Saturday, Feb. 11, the Alabama Museum of Natural History will host a family night for children and parents to learn together about space.
More than 20 graduate departments will be represented at different stations. Children will be given a star map, which they can fill out by visiting the stations until they complete a constellation. Other games and activities will include a "Martian Quicksand Pit" and writing stories about space.
“It is a great interactive family event that is unlike other options,” said Cori Perdue, director of the University’s Graduate School Programs, to UANews. “Families can spend the evening discovering space together, learning about things from engineering to textile design to biology to theatre and dance. . . It is a great event for families to make memories that will last by doing fun and educational activities in a very creative setting.”
The event will take place from 5-8 p.m. and is free to all students, staff and community members.
