The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History invites you to celebrate Earth Week by learning about the world around you. The museum will bring together educators, scientists, and local partners to celebrate Earth Week, providing hands-on experiments, live demonstrations, and interactive lessons.
“Earth Week gives people all over the world a time to think about how we all do our part to take care of the planet,” said Dr. Doug Roberts, the museum’s chief public engagement officer.
From April 19 – April 25, participants will be able to learn all about the environment through a series of pre-recorded Earth-themed videos, engage with live events on the Museum’s Facebook page, and compete in the Museum’s first-ever Earth Week Scavenger Hunt for a chance to win prizes from the Museum, Tarrant Regional Water District, and other local partners.
Here are a few of the experiences planned for Earth Week:
- Bob the Turtle: Learn all about this legendary snapping turtle that is the unofficial mascot of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.
- Lights Out Texas: Find out how dimming the lights in our largest cities helps migrating birds stay on the correct path.
- Snakes: These fascinating animals frequently get a bad reputation. Learn why snakes are an important part of our environment and help keep things in a healthy balance.
- Birdwatching and Feeding: Presented by Log Cabin Village
- Earth Week Scavenger Hunt in partnership with Tarrant Regional Water District
- A collection of pre-recorded videos created by the Museum’s education team and local students.
- And more!
