  "Satur-Play!"   

"Satur-Play!"

  • Location: Illinois State Museum, Springfield, Springfield
  • Date: Saturday, May 31, 2014, 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Every Saturday is Super!
Introducing Satur-Play! at the Illinois State Museum. Be drawn in by fun science experiments and art projects so entertaining and intriguing, you may forget you are learning too! When there isn’t a Super Saturday (2nd Saturday of each month), expect a Satur-Play! activity from 11AM-3PM in the Play Museum. Recommended for the whole family and suggested for ages 3-10.

May Activities:
May 17 | “ pH Tests” Did you know that cabbage juice is a pH indicator solution? This means it will change color depending on if you add an acid or a base. Try your hand at kitchen chemistry!

May 24 | “Polymers” How do you hold water upside down without spilling it? Can you really push a pencil through a bag full of water? Answer: With the “magic” of polymers you can do almost anything!

May 31 | “Origami Passenger Pigeons” 2014 is the Year of the Passenger Pigeon. We will learn about the importance of preservation and balance in nature. We will create origami pigeons to display in the museum as part of a community art installation.

Satur-Play! is an engaging hands-on enhancement program for the Mary Ann MacLean Play Museum at the Illinois State Museum. This exciting new program features science and art activities that children and families can participate in while visiting the Play Museum. A different theme and activity will be offered each week on Saturday with the exception of Super Saturdays. Registration is not required. For more information, call the Education Section at (217) 782-5955.
