Eruption! : Build a model Volcano at the Wilson Museum

Castine -

CASTINE РThe Wilson Museum in Castine presents, Eruption: Build a model volcano at 1pm, Tuesday, July 15th.  Join staff member Sarah for an educational and hands-on activity. Children will be able to learn about volcanoes and chemical reactions, as they build their own model volcano and then cause it to erupt. Rock cookies will be served afterward.

The Wilson Museum was founded by a geologist in 1921, and geology continues to be a strong focus for the museum. This activity goes hand-in-hand with this focus and the museum’s permanent geology exhibit.

The Wilson Museum is located at 120 Perkins Street in Castine. Children under the age of twelve should be accompanied by an adult, and there will be a charge of three dollars for materials. Please register for this program by contacting 326-9247 or info@wilsonmuseum.org.
