JUST ADD WATER –June 1th- Aug. 22 at Children’s Museum of Denver; 10am-5pm

This summer, the Children’s Museum of Denver will provide young children with an opportunity to explore the wonder of water. Just Add will fill 1,900 square feet of outdoor space with geysers, whirlpools, vortices, pumps, channels, fountains, spigots and spouts.
The exhibit will have four components: The Blank Slate Gallery, The Geysers, Whirlpools & Fountains and Water Works. Each will present a different chance to develop and enhance children’s understanding of the physical science concepts of volume, weight, pressure, force, buoyancy, density, trajectory, displacement and states of matter. They will be encouraged to make decisions, formulate and test hypotheses, and engage problem-solving skills in this hands-on water laboratory.
RAINFOREST ADVENTURE-Saturday, June 21st-Sept. 3rd at The Wildlife Experience
10035 S. Peoria Parker, CO 80134
Rainforest Adventure is a multisensory expedition that introduces visitors to tropical rainforests around the world, highlights the challenges facing these unique ecological wonders and suggests ways that people can make a difference. Test your rainforest knowledge in the 2,500 sq. ft. human size maze! Incorrect answers lead to dead-ends while correct answers lead them deeper into the four layers of the rainforest: emergent, canopy, understory and forest floor.
