The Children's Trust Family Expo
Frost Science will present a special day-long space for children of all ages, celebrating STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education and environmental awareness. Ongoing programming from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM will include live science demonstrations and engaging hands-on activities. Test how things fly in the museum’s wind tunnel and get a preview of the new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, currently under construction in downtown Miami’s Museum Park. Meet real scientists and bring a piece of “Earth” home after learning about South Florida’s climate and environment on behalf of MUVE (Museum Volunteers for the Environment ), the Museum’s environmental habitat restoration project.

The Science Tree House, presented by the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, will bring the elements around us to life! Find fossils, freeze objects with liquid nitrogen, test the laws of aerodynamics, learn the magic behind science, as real scientists provide a fun and educational sensory overload of activities.

There are no fees to participate.

Time: 10am - 5pm
