Gobble, Gobble: Turkeys on Mars!

Would a turkey survive a deep space mission? Suit up and find out the stats needed for North America’s largest native bird, and icon of Thanksgiving, to survive and thrive on all 8 planets in our solar system! Will your turkey turn out well done or frozen solid?

Join us on the second Saturday of each month at 11:30 a.m. for the Saturday Scientist series, an educational series featuring activities recommended for ages 6-9.

This monthly hands-on activity is included with museum membership or paid admission and emphasizes the development of “STEAM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). This series includes exciting topics like solar energy, precipitation, geology of space and chemistry.

All workshops are aligned to Next Generation Science (NGSS), Common Core Math (CCM), and Alabama College and Career Readiness Standards (ALCCRS).

Reserve your seat at the main ticket desk upon your arrival.

Museum members may enter the Davidson Center for Space Exploration.
