Wanted: GIRLS who are problem solvers, explorers and hidden gem seekers—for a day of science fun at the LSU Museum of Natural Science.
This year, Girls Day at the Museum will be a virtual experience that will allow young explorers to learn about the collections at the Museum of Natural Science (MNS) and other nationally known research museums. So, spend a Saturday morning engrossed in a virtual exploration of reptiles, birds, fish and other exciting specimens AND participate in virtual chats with some of LSU’s top women scientists.
The girls will also receive a Girls Day at the Museum activity pack with everything they need to participate in a guided hands-on learning experience.
We are preparing for our next Girls Day at the Museum! Follow us on social media to get updates.
