Celebrate ‘International Women and Girls in Science Day’ with hands-on activities and experiments during this FREE program open to everyone.

In 2015, the United Nations selected Feb. 11 as ‘International Women and Girls in Science Day‘ in order to further achieve gender equality and encourage more female participation in science. Join us for a day full of activities and conversation with a variety of scientists!

While the event activities are FREE, there is an admission charge for the Antarctic Dinosaurs and Butterfly Rainforest exhibits.

This event is dedicated to Museum researcher and former Allyn Curator of Lepidoptera at the McGuire Center, Jacqueline Miller in honor of her retirement in 2023.


Meet local scientists and do fun activities throughout the afternoon.
