Summer Hands-On Science - Health & the Human Body: July 22

Explore how the human body works through hands-on science this July at Koshland. Each session investigates a different aspect of the body – everything from DNA to why our skin burns after too much sun exposure. Visitors can compare DNA and amino acids, experiment with biomedical engineering, discover the different lobes of the human brain, and much more!

Join us every Saturday in July from 11:00am to 2:00pm.

Extreme Event Game: July 12

Summer in Washington, DC can be challenging. In addition to heat and humidity we also face the possibility of severe storms that can affect many neighborhoods around the city. Located at the confluence of the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers, combined with three buried waterways, relatively flat elevations, and a changing climate, DC is highly susceptible to flooding. So what’s a DC resident to do? Join us for our Extreme Event game to find out!
