Captain Avery Museum ‘Weird Science’ Program on Sunday
The final Sunday family program at the Capt. Avery Museum will feature “Weird Science.” The program will run from 1 to 3 p.m. on Aug. 19. The program will be presented by Shady Side Elementary student Zachary Fegley. Zach took the top prize for third grade in Shady Side’s Science Fair and went on to take first place in Physics and Engineering in the county competition. The family friendly program is free, but reservations are encouraged.
Zach will help us create an active volcano, demonstrate how to scare pepper and even answer the question, “Is all water created equal?”
The Capt. Avery Museum has been the site of several family-friendly Sunday programs throughout this summer. Weird Science is the final program in the series. The first was a family history and genealogy presentation in June. In July, storyteller Ann Widdifeld stopped by to tell a story. And, in early August, the Muddy Creek Artist Guild put on their annual “Do Art” program.
Weird Science program is geared for children in elementary school. Light refreshments will be served.
To reserve a space, call the museum office, 410-867-4486. The museum is located at 1418 EW Shady Side Road, Shady Side.
The next event for the museum is the West River Heritage Oyster Festival on Oct. 21 from noon to 5 p.m. or more information on the programs available throughout the year, visit the museum online at www.captainaverymuseum.org.
