Have some fun with Academy educators and other young natural history fans for a very special science story time. Each week will feature a science story and a hands-on craft to try.

You may enjoy some of the following topics:

  • Jump up and dance as we read “Dinosaurrumpus” by Tony Mitton and get crafting with dinosaur pasta pals.
  • What do birds look like? How do they act, and how are they like (and not like) you? What would it be like if you could talk to them? Explore these questions as we read “Birds” by Kevin Henkes and get crafting with a bird in the hand.
  • If you’re like Rodney, you always want to be outside. One day, Rodney gets to go to a very special park where he can run, climb and be himself, and it changes him forever. Join us for “Where’s Rodney” by Carmen Bogan (recommended by Social Justice Books) and make binoculars to take home.
  • When Maisy goes to the museum, there is so much to discover—dinosaurs, a woolly mammoth, rocket ships and more. Come explore with us as we read “Maisy Goes to the Museum” by Lucy Cousins and make our very own museum crafts.

Upcoming Storytime Dates:

  • August 12 and 13
  • September 9 and 10
  • October 14 and 15

Science StoryTime will take place at the Aquatic Reptile Nook in Dinosaur Hall.
