Tuesdays @ 2 - June Programs

From June 4 through Aug. 13, 2019, the Missouri State Museum is hosting a fun twist on summer programming. "Tuesdays@2" is a series of interactive programs exploring various aspects of Missouri's cultural and natural history, specifically focused on age groups 8 to 12 years using more activity-based programming. For similar-themed programming for younger children, please see our regular "Learning@11" programs for age groups 4 to 7. The programs will be held at Jefferson Landing State Historic Site.

The broad theme for this summer's programs is "communication."  The series will explore how people and wildlife communicate--past and present.

June themes are:

June 4:  Babies in the mail?
Did you know some parents once sent children in the mail? What would that take and why?  Don't try this at home!

June 11:  Fremont Spotlights the American WestLet's
Go exploring to the West with John C. Fremont and Kit Carson. We'll learn how these men encouraged Americans to move west by telling their stories in the east.

June 18:  The Pony Express:  Bold, Brave, Brief
Looking to learn about a real adventure? Pony Express riders moved mail 2,000 miles in 10 days during the mid-1800s. Come learn about the brave riders and their tireless ponies.

June 25:  How do insects communicate?
Doyou know that fireflies have a secret language? Have you learned the Waggle dance? Join us to learn how insects use the five senses (sight, smell, sound, taste and touch) to communicate.
