In the Community…

January 16, 2008

On January 18th visit the Rochester Museum & Science Center for the grand opening of two new Expedition Earth galleries: An Ever Changing Planet, and You and Your Earth.  These expansions feature exhibits and hands-on activities that allow visitors to examine what Rochester was like millions of years ago and how human evolution has affected the area.  This is a great opportunity for students (and adults!) to learn about how their actions can impact the environment.

The RMSC has been an integral part of the Rochester community for almost a decade.  Do you have any RMSC memories to share, whether as a teacher or parent (or maybe from your own childhood)?
