Meeting Room

The Bakken Museum, along with Washington County Library, are thrilled to bring another summer of hands on activities, games, and experiments through GlaxoSmithKline’s Science in the Summer!

Through active, hands-on learning, students explore the sun’s energy, the phases of the moon, human survival in space, and how rockets overcome Earth’s gravity. From here on Earth, we look up and see the sun and moon. From here, we dream of space travel. From here, we achieve liftoff. For students entering grades 2 through 5 only. 

Students must be present for both sessions. Parents/Guardians will need to sign release forms before the program starts. That can happen by email before the date of the program, or when the students are dropped off.
