African Americans in ScienceThis year marks the 23rd anniversary of the Science Museum of Minnesota's annual African Americans in Science. At African Americans in Science, you can meet science and educational professionals, learn about what they do through interactive displays and presentations, and discover the inspiring contributions they've made to technology, education, health care, and innovation in Minnesota. Last year, visitors learned about germs, electricity, blood pressure, pollen, and weather, among others! Come to the museum on Saturday, January 10, 2015, from 1-4 p.m., to see what exciting science knowledge you can gain and what exciting science people you can meet.

Science Fusion is great for kids and adults alike. Activities are included in museum admission. Up to four children get in free with each full price adult (from 1-4 p.m. at the box office).
