Each year the Museum partners with public libraries all over Southeastern Michigan to present three fun, family workshops about science. Workshops are designed for children ages 6-11, accompanied by an adult.
The 2014 program theme is: Predators and Prey: The Eternal Struggle
The world can be a brutal place -- eat or be eaten. In order to deal with this constant dilemma, hunters and the hunted have evolved different strategies to give themselves a fighting chance. Join us on a 3 workshop journey through time as we explore the strategies that predators and prey have used to try to keep a leg up on the competition.
To register for workshops at the Museum, call Marina Mayne at (734) 764-0480 or e-mail email@example.com.
