Science Family Day (2013)
Mar 16, 2013 – 8:00 am - Mar 23, 2013 – 5:00 pm
Over two dozen Balboa Park institutions and community partners will once again put their heads together to demonstrate how much fun learning science can be at the Science Family Day. The park-wide Family Day on March 16 will kick off the weeklong San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering 2013, as various museums and cultural institutions feature science-related hands-on activities and special programs for kids of all ages.
At the Museum of Man, kids of all ages can experience what it’s like to be a real physical anthropologist as they compare and contrast bone features using replica bones and artifacts. Learn how forensic scientists identify bones and what they tell us about people, their age, and gender, and then test your own knowledge of human bones. Activities are free with museum admission and children under 12 are free with adult admission.
From March 16 to 23, the San Diego Festival of Science & Engineering 2013 will present programs throughout the county, culminating in the free Science & Engineering EXPO DAY at PETCO Park on March 23, which will feature more than 135 hands-on exhibits and 16 stage performances. The event will take place from 10:00am until 5:00pm. For a complete schedule, visit www.sdsciencefestival.com.
