This September as part of ongoing Science Tuesdays programming at the Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) visitors have the opportunity to interact with various stations to learn about science and art. Science Tuesdays is an ongoing educational experience offering science programming based on changing themes each month.
As part of September’s Science Tuesdays, visitors will explore the many intersections of science and art from paper chromatography to the color wheel. Optical illusions will be shown to visitors to see how color can play tricks on our brain. Families and students will also have the opportunity to interact with different hands-on activities.
This month Artists Creating Together will join the Museum on Tuesday, Sept. 20, with additional hands-on activities for all ages.
Throughout the month students from Kendall College of Art & Design will be sharing their art and explaining how it assists in interpreting science. On Tuesday, Sept. 27, there will be a live performance at 3:30 p.m. in the Museum’s Meijer Theater for performance art that was inspired by science.
Science Tuesdays take place throughout the day every Tuesday at the Museum and include a variety of activities and interactive displays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Activities are free with general admission to the Museum.
Future Science Tuesdays programming will be themed around activities happening at the Museum. For upcoming months themes and activities please visit grpm.org.
