June Activities at Powerhouse

Summer break is here and we’re kicking it off with one of our most popular (and slimy) family workshops! This program usually sells out, so don’t wait too much longer to sign up. As always, members receive a discount on Powerhouse programs.

In June we will also be jumping into science summer camps! Haven’t registered yet? There are still spots left, but they are filling fast. The deadline to register for our Whodunit? CSI 2019 camp is Monday, June 3rd.  CLICK HERE to for full camp descriptions and dates.

We will close out the moth with a visit from our friends at the Sacramento Valley Astronomical Society to celebrate International Sun-Day. Join us to view the sun through one of their solar scopes.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

JUNE 1 | SQUID DISSECTION | 9:30AM-10:30AM

JUNE 8 | SCIENCE STORYTIME |11:00AM
Join us in Nature Discovery to listen to a science-themed story. Afterwards, participate in fun, hands-on activity! In June we will be reading Rory the Dinosaur: Me and My Dad by Liz Climo.

JUNE 16 | LED LIGHT UP CARDS|12:00PM-4:00PM

JUNE 22 | CREATE & TAKE: UV BEAD BRACELETS |10:00AM-11:30AM
Celebrate the summer solstice by making a color-changing bracelet you can wear all summer long! The special UV beads change color when they are exposed to sunlight and can serve as a good reminder to apply sunscreen!

JUNE 22-JUNE 23 | INTERNATIONAL SUN-DAY|11:00AM-3:00PM
In honor of International SUN-Day our friends from the Sacramento Valley Astronomical Society will be on-site with their solar telescopes. These hydrogen alpha scopes allow you to see the sun directly, showing spots and prominences.
