COLOSSAL SUMMER SCIENCE: SERIOUS SCENTS

July 14-15 | 11:00AM-4:00PM

In our Colossal Summer Science series we're highlighting different concepts that are massive in size or impact. On July 14-15 we will be exploring what your nose knows. Through the use of scent stations we will investigate how we are able to smell, why some things smell good or bad, and how smell is connected to our sense of taste. Once you know more about how powerful your nose is head over to Design Lab to make your own "mucus" to bring home. All programs are FREE with admission.

WHEN| July 14-15
