Summer 2016 Science Classes for Students


 

 

The Maturango Museum docents are offered two classes this summer through the City of Ridgecrest. Both classes were held at the Museum and taught by retired teachers and very knowledgeable, trained docents.

Cost: $50 per student and is open for students ages 9-12 (students going into 4th, 5th, or 6th grade in fall 2016).

Description: This class brings back popular animals and events from last year plus several new activities.The class begins with a study of predators/prey in the bird world. We will do bird watching, dissect owl pellets, and make bird feeders and prints. Then we put on our lab coats to collect and compare data on desert critters-including  a study of reptile friends and foes. We will feature live tortoises and Rosey, our rosy boa pet.
