Come One, Come All to The Carnival & Science Spectacular at the Staten Island Children’s Museum!

The Staten Island Children’s Museum - Jennifer Dudley - May 15, 2018
The Staten Island Children’s Museum will celebrate spring, science and supporters during its annual fundraiser: The Carnival & Science Spectacular!
In addition to the classic rides, popcorn and cotton candy, this old fashioned-family Carnival will be infused with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) interactive exhibits, all designed to keep education at the forefront of the day.
 
Visitors of all ages can learn how STEAM works in our daily lives through fun activities such as creating paper pots and planting seeds to take home; building mini-weather vanes; creating a collage using color mixing; and making cool catapults!
 
When: Saturday, June 2 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm (rain date: Sunday, June 3)
 
Where: Staten Island Children’s Museum, East Meadow, on the grounds of Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Gardens, 1000 Richmond Terrace on Staten Island
 
Cost: Tickets are $13 until May 31 and will be $16 at the gate. They can be purchased at the Children’s Museum or from sichildrensmuseum.org. Members and the general public must purchase tickets to enter the Carnival and Museum for this special fundraising day. Tickets are non-refundable.
 
New demonstrations and entertainment this year include the live “Fire & Ice” show by Mad Science®, as well as table activities from Eye Level Learning Center and Tegu blocks. This year’s Carnival will also feature a new rock climbing wall for young adventurers!
 
Classic rides such as the Dixie Swing and Turbo Tubs are returning along with clowns Watson & Christine; the robotics teams from St. Clare School, Xaverian High School and St. Joseph by-the-Sea; and the Green Tech Club’s solar racer car. The NY Insect Zoo and the MakerSpace Mobile STEM Wagon will be in attendance as well. More demonstrators are signing up daily, so visit sichildrensmuseum.org for up-to-the-minute information!
