Virtual Saturday Family Science

Flower Power
Saturday, May 23, 10am

Can you eat sunlight and help bees make honey? Flowers aren’t just beautiful to see and pick, they are a vital part of nature. This week we’ll look at flowers, the special adaptations they use to thrive in our world, and how we’ve come to depend on them as humans.

***In this week’s live portion of Saturday Science we will be dissecting a flower together.
Have your children bring a flower on Saturday if they would like to follow along!***
