Make a MESS: Fall Flowers
Celebrate Take a Child Outside Week!
Make a MESS: Fall Flowers.

Drop-in 2:00pm - 4:30pm in our Discovery Woods

Fall is the time that Mother Nature sows her seeds, so they are ready for Spring.

We'll take a cue from nature, and get our hands a little dirty, as we make "seed bombs," simple tools for scattering seeds.

This program will happen light rain or shine.

Heavy rain or other inclement weather may result in changes to the program or cancellation.

The Make a MESS (Math, Engineering, Science, & Stuff) program series introduces STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) concepts through exploration, imagination, and fun.

Your admission covers both the Children's and Science Discovery Museums, as well as our new Discovery Woods nature playscape and treehouse.

Visit them all and spend the day with us!

When: Sep 30, 2016 12am to Sep 30, 2016 12am in Acton, MA
