The program is designed for multiple learning levels with a range of hands-on activities. It is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 8.
The cost is $2 for museum members and $6 for non-members. Pre-registration is required and can be arranged by calling (480) 644-3553 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the museum, visit http://www.azmnh.org.
