JOIN THE ADVENTURE!
MICRO’s High School Explorer Program trains and employs a team of high school students to engage the public across NYC in free science exploration at MICRO’s museums.
Right now, MICRO’s incredible Explorers are giving weekly tours of the South Bronx’s Smallest Mollusk Museum, taking visitors on adventures through the last 650 million years of life on earth.
Slime? Tentacles? Alien brains and strange truths? MICRO’s Explorers will show you how to see through a whole new set of eyes!
Explorers specialize in bilingual Spanish and English science activities and play for kids… of all ages.
Tours don’t start or end at a specific time; just show up in the tour window on Tuesday afternoons. This is not your normal science museum, and MICRO’s Explorers are not your normal nerds. MICRO’s Explorers ask big questions, and have big laughs.
Get ready for a whole new view of snails.
When? Every Tuesday afternoon, anytime between 3:00-5:00
Where? Smallest Mollusk Museum, front lobby Lincoln Medical Center, South Bronx. Directions.
How much? Free, of course! MICRO’s museums are always free to visit.
Who? Everyone, every age.
