The Denver Museum of Nature & Science (2001 Colorado Blvd. in Denver) hosts its 5th annual Girls & Science event on Saturday, March 2 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Attendees can explore a variety of Science Clubhouses, where girls (and boys) can meet women scientists and experience the many diverse opportunities a future in science, technology, engineering, art and math can bring.
Families will have the chance to meet with women in science-related careers (or who are using science in surprising ways in their work) and explore the cool tools of their trade.
Kids can also participate in activities they may not expect from a career in science, including botanical illustrations and coding. (The activities are targeted to ages 8 to 13, but all ages are welcome.)
The event will feature eight Science Clubhouses hosted by Career Mentors working in STEAM fields (science, technology, engineering, arts and math), along with many professionals participating in Stories with Scientists and small-group mentor meetups.
Using activities and conversations, Career Mentors will share their personal experiences and encourage girls and their families to try careers on, test them out and play.
The event is included in the price of general admission and, on this day, ages 3 to 18 get a General Admission ticket for just $4. Admission for adults is $17.95 and seniors (65+) is $14.95. For families who use SNAP Access, admission is FREE— just show your EBT card at ticketing. Museum members and military also get in for FREE.
