February at the Children’s Museum Tucson!
February 4, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm UTC+0
GET A SCIENCE BOOST EVERY WEEK!
Family Brain Boost is a fun, hands-on opportunity for the whole family to get excited about science! At our first Brain Boost, we learned about BUBBLES! Mixing the solution is chemistry. Light refraction is optics. The structure of the bubble is physics. It’s a science extravaganza! Family Brain Boost is at 1 pm every Saturday, and is included with museum admission. The program is made possible in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Learn More

Throughout 2016, Children’s Museum Tucson will have $3 30s. On the 30th of each month, admission to the museum will be just $3 per person!
