October 21
10:00 am – 1:00 pm

The Education department is in its second year of an Institute for Museum and Library Sciences funded research project with the Pacific Science Center. This project, called Portal to the Public, is expanding a network of science communication curriculum to include art and history museums and attempting to determine the value and impact on such programming at these types of cultural institutions.

This year we are excited to announce that we have invited arts experts to participate in the workshop trainings this fall. Graduating fellows from the workshops series will be interacting with the public at Family Day: Art and Science on Saturday, October 21. From 10:00 am-1:00 pm families can meet one of these practicing artists and scientists. Each fellow will have a hands-on project to share with kids, adults and the general public. Family Day: Art and Science is a fun filled day where visitors can learn how artists work and what new research local scientists are conducting here at the UA. Kids will also enjoy face painting, a scavenger hunt and art making activities. The event is free with general museum admission. Learn more about Portal to the Public here
