Can’t make it to Roberson? Bring Roberson to you! These interactive outreach programs based in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math provide unique learning experiences and allow students to explore different science, history and art topics in a hands-on way. Topics include:

• Steampunk Sculpture Building: Students learn about steampunk art and create their own piece out of scrap woods and metals.

• Historic Object Identification: Students use their deductive reasoning to determine the function of antique objects. They will also take several antique objects and imagine a new use for them.

• Animal Adaptations: Students explore unique attributes of different animals by examining our taxidermy collection as well as hands on activities.

• Phases of Matter: Students explore solids liquids and gases through interactive activities and make their own “slime” to take home.

• Magic of Science: Students will learn demos and experiments that wow, as well as the science that makes them work.

• Fossils: Dig for, and identify common fossils. Students will also learn how fossils are formed, and make their own fossil impression to take home.
