Science doesn’t always happen in a laboratory–it can happen right in your own backyard!

Science happens all around us and lots of it happens right outside your door. MSC’s annual Backyard Science Days take place this year on August 10 and 11 from Noon until 4. Meet some familiar backyard animals, help build a giant playhouse outside The Shed, get up close and personal with animal scat and more. Plus, see the new IMAX film Backyard Wilderness. All activities are free with paid admission, IMAX requires an extra fee.
