The Science Behind Series

Directions to Walking Mountains Science Center


Have you ever wondered how something works or how something was made? In the monthly Science Behind series, we partner with a guest presenter to explore a large variety of interesting topics. The Science Behind series offers opportunities for adults to apply new knowledge and skills to everyday life, while having fun!

Classes are free or low cost to attend. Space is limited! Classes are monthly held virtually until we can gather safely in groups again.

Science Behind Scientific Sketching
July 14th | 6:30-8:00PM

Join us as we put pen to paper and explore scientific sketching.  From famous field guides to your personal sketch pad, scientific sketching is a powerful tool that helps professionals and hobbyists alike record the world around them. Your registration includes a sketching kit but you don’t need any artistic skills to join in on the fun. We will work to sharpen our existing observational skills and learn a few new techniques as well.
