Science Thursdays

Event Details

On Science Thursdays, drop in and explore the Bullock Museum, see demonstrations, and participate in hands-on activities with STEM experts from Central Texas Discover Engineering. Science Thursdays are FREE for all groups who have pre-registered for a Bullock Museum field trip, FREE for members, and FREE with exhibition admission.

Every Science Thursday is different, but all activities connect to content in the exhibits and films at the Museum, and may include some of the following:

Hair-Raising Experience with a Van de Graaff Generator: See how electricity can make your hair stand on end!

Boat Race: Design a boat that will float using limited materials and race it using only your breath.

Don't Sink the Cargo!: Can you distribute your cargo without sinking your vessel?

Float your Boat: Hypothesize about what will sink and what will float.
