Children's Museum offers second Summer Science Sunday

TUCSON - Inside the Children's Museum kids can keep themselves busy for hours. But, this summer they can learn more than usual in the museums second summer Science Sundays.

Every Sunday through September first admission is just two bucks and the museum will offer even more hands on activities

"We call it Science Sundays but what it's really all about is STEM, which stand for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. And it's an opportunity for the Children's Museum to provide an extra dose of learning if you will. Fun! But, also learning for children and families during the summer months when many of the kids are out of school," said Michael Luria, museum director.

Anna, a volunteer from San Miguel High School makes sure these students are learning while they're having fun.

"Try to teach them what the basic thing is in each room. if it's a science, try and get them to have a basic knowledge of the science behind the activity that they are doing so they are not just playing with it, they can actually understand what they are doing," said Anna.

The lineup is an impressive one
.
"It might just be our own science cart here at the Children's Museum, but in addition to that, Every Sunday we have a different partner come in from the community to help us offer those hands on activities. So it's the Desert Museum this Sunday, which is kicking it off, but over the course of the summer we'll have the Girl Scouts here, planetary sciences, physics factory, Pima Air and Space."
