As a public health precaution due to COVID-19, all Smithsonian museums are temporarily closed. We are not announcing a reopening date at this time and will provide updates on our websites and social media.
This free virtual summer program series in 2020 allowed students to explore the world of natural history science in a fun and interactive way! Each week we explored a different natural-science-based theme and provided a suite of daily live webinars, videos, activities, and projects.
