Join a full day of family-friendly activities, performances, and lectures showcasing local and international efforts devoted to preserving planet Earth.

In Polyglot Theatre’s Bees (10:30 am, noon, 2:15 pm & 3:30 pm), life-sized bees take over the Museum’s galleries, inviting children to explore their dynamic world through movement, sound, and play. Try hair, makeup, and nail art, drawing inspiration from the vibrant hues and intricate patterns found in oceanic species. Using techniques from improv, role-playing, and other theater games, participate in hands-on exercises designed to foster understanding and action on climate issues.

Learn about the real science that happens on the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) ship through the pop-up science experiment “In Search of Earth’s Secrets.” Try a smartphone-based augmented reality experience that will enable visitors in the Hall of Ocean Life to learn about the vital role that ocean ecosystems play in Earth’s climate system. Use a variety of microscopes to get a sparkling introduction to plankton swimming in NYC’s ponds and winged critters that glide on the breezes of our urban habitats.

Join environmental STEM educator Solar One for a workshop to build your own solar car. Visit “Ask an Expert” stations, where you can engage with knowledgeable scientists and educators to satisfy your curiosity about the wonders of the Earth. Join the hive by crafting your own antenna, wings, or bee stripes in a hands-on art-making activity.
