Hands-On Learning of Florida’s Water, Coming to the Museum of History
FREE Museum admission for children 13 and under, April 17, 2016
WaterVentures Learning Lab – a traveling science center that focuses on water education and ecology – will make its Tampa Bay area stop at the St. Petersburg Museum of History on Saturday, April 17, 2016 from 12-5pm.
Crucial to the future of St. Petersburg, water is Florida’s most valuable resource. This summer, the residents of the Sunshine City can spend a day of fun hands-on exploring/exploration of how water moves through our state and our lives.
The Lab is actually a 53-foot semi-trailer which has been customized to provide a platform for educational and entertaining programs. A dynamic staff of trained educators travels with the lab and interact directly with the public, and the vehicle features both indoor and outdoor Learning Lab stations.
The outdoor activity center will have an AV screen for educational presentations and hands on student stations such as watershed tables, a relief map of Florida’s water features, recycling exhibits, product distribution bins, and a demonstration table.
Inside the semi-trailer, guests explore museum quality learning activities. The exhibits focus on water education and the artistic exhibits encourage positive stewardship of Florida’s diverse watersheds through various activities.
WaterVentures will be open free to the public April 17 from 12pm to 5pm and will be located on the Museum property at 335 2nd Ave NE.
