Delaware Museum of Natural History a Key Part of International Science Center & Science Museum Day
In the largest joint project ever launched by the world’s science centers and museums, the Delaware Museum of Natural History will join 300+ other institutions on every inhabited continent to celebrate International Science Center & Science Museum Day (ISCSMD) on Friday, November 10.
ISCSMD activities at the Delaware Museum of Natural History and locations around the world represent a united international effort to raise awareness and encourage action towards global sustainability, focusing on the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which seek to end poverty, fight inequalities, tackle climate change, and transform our world—while ensuring that no one is left behind.
Science lovers of all ages and stages are encouraged to visit DMNH for activities geared toward sustaining a healthy environment including a scavenger hunt, story times featuring the Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry, live animal presentations, and selfie spots as well as the opportunity to visit our galleries and current traveling exhibit “Here Be Dragons.” We will also show two different Planet Earth episodes about ocean life and the polar bear’s dilemma. This event is FREE with paid admission to the Delaware Museum of Natural History.
With a focus on nature and science, DMNH’s involvement focuses on three SDGs:
- Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
- Goal 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources
- Goal 15: Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss
