Enjoy a well-deserved date night while your kids have a fun-filled evening through Kids Night Out @ Western (KNOW). Students in grades 1-6 will explore hands-on science activities in Shannon Point Marine Center's student lab and library, and watch a film at the end of the night.
We encourage children to come with questions and leave with knowledge. This is an awesome way to introduce marine biology and hands-on science activities to your children. Get in the KNOW and join the fun!
February 23 – Exploring Echinoderms
Learn about extraordinary echinoderms (sea stars, brittle stars, sand dollars, sea cucumbers, sea urchins and more!) Learn about echinoderm structure, diversity and what makes them best suited for their habitats. Build your own echinoderm out of clay to take home at the end of the night. Kids will also get a chance to look at Shannon Point Marine Center’s local invertebrates and identify which ones are echinoderms.
Students are asked to bring:
- A healthy snack
- A water bottle
- A curious mind
Instructors: Molly Sutton and Bobbi Bevacqua
