SCIENCE CENTRAL: SCIENCE ROCKS
Wednesday, June 5th from 12pm-2pm
Science Central will visit NMPL for a special Science Rocks program! This event will run from 12pm to 2pm and participants are welcome to come at any time during that 2 hour time period to check out the fun, interactive stations available to explore! Kids will “dig” this program delving into Indiana’s geology. Why is Indiana so flat? We will recreate in one afternoon what happened over a very long period of time. Dig into Indiana’s past and discover the sea animals that used to live here. Heat, pressure, and time are the primary ingredients for metamorphic rock, and participants will make a rock model of their own!
