The Connecticut Science Center will respond to a COVID-19 need expressed by families for outdoor learning experiences by developing four outdoor, STEM-focused events at its outdoor plaza. Each event will focus on different areas of science and will feature partnerships with local arts performers, vendors, and partners, as well as museum educators who will lead interactive science demonstrations that connect to Next Generation Science Standards. Additionally, the museum will develop a permanent outdoor interactive exhibit that allows visitors to use their shadow to tell the time, along with additional content that supports citizen science activities. Project activities will support students’ recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic by providing outdoor STEM experiences outdoors that help them connect to the local environment.
