Annual Family Energy Festival
Houston Museum of Natural Science
Saturday, October 9, 11:30pm- 4:00pm
We kick off the week with our annual Family Energy Festival at the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s Paleontology Hall and Wiess Energy Hall. NEW! This year’s festival will feature the same great passport program as in previous years and will coincide with the launch of HMNS’s new Energy Conservation Club (ECC). In addition to our great demonstrations by area Geosciences organizations, the museum has a special celebration sponsored by Marathon Oil Corporation and the Weiss Energy Hall Partners that will include the "Billy B" show (www. billybproductions.com) and numerous interactive demonstrations about renewable energy. As in past years, Houston area Cub Scouts and Webelos are encouraged to come and work on their Geology Belt Loops and Activity Pins. This year is the first-ever "energy" themed Earth Science Week. This is a great opportunity to share your knowledge and love of science with family and friends.
