If you can be a superhero, who would you be? How would you get your powers? What sort of gadget would you use and how would it work? These questions can be answered at DISCOVERY Children’s Museum SuperHeroes Day At The Museum Saturday, Aug. 1 from 10 am – 5 pm. Using their imaginations, children and adults are invited to create their own superhero identity in this day-long celebration that focuses on STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math) and the arts.
Action-packed activities, SuperHero character appearances and extraordinary, educational events will bring SuperHeroes to life in a fun and interactive way. Superhero-themed activities include: Science Theater and the introduction of Hypothesis Hero and the scientific method; exploring Superman’s ability to fly and Thor’s ability to create lightning. Guests are invited to create their own superhero identity by making their own mask, superhero medallion as well as wristband cuffs. These items can then be taken home for more SuperHero fun! Learn about SuperHeroes from character appearances including Batman, Robin, Spider-Man, Supergirl, Rogue (X-Men) and Finn from Adventure Time plus many more. Visitors will also be able to participate in face painting activities for an additional charge of $3 per person.
