From June 3 through Aug. 26, the Missouri State Museum is introducing a new twist to summer programming. "Learning@11" is a series of interactive programs exploring various aspects of Missouri's cultural and natural history specifically focused on age groups 4 to 7 years using more activity-based programming. For similar-themed programming for older children, please see our regular "Tuesday@2" programs for age groups 8 to 12.
- July 1: "What is in the Earth?" – We are going to explore what can be found in the earth while using a dig box and understand the importance of our finds.
- July 8: "Wild, Wild Missouri!" – Learn about common wild animals in Missouri, what they look like and what their tracks look like.
- July 15: "Primitive Times" – Come see what archaeologist have found of giant ice age animals and learn more about them as we decorate animal facemasks.
- July 22: "The Battleship Missouri" – Battleships were floating cities! Using our model of the Battleship Missouri in the museum, we will explore the size of this ship and how many people did it take to run the ship.
- July 29: "Busy Beavers" – Turn yourself into a beaver and explore his lodge, learning how and why they made their homes.
