MS SCIENCE FEST OVERVIEW
The LeFleur Museum District (LMD) invites you to attend a special STEM themed festival! On Saturday, September 23rd, all four museums will host a day dedicated to promoting STEM subjects and increasing science literacy. Children and families will have the opportunity to interact with nationally renowned STEM professionals, engage in hands-on activities, and explore exciting experiments and exhibits.
On this special day, visitors can purchase a $10 ticket that will allow you to visit ALL FOUR museums and participate in the MS Science Fest!
Experts and special guests from science-based industries across the state will provide hands-on experiences for children and families. By bringing these experts together, MSF is able to show the range of career opportunities that exist while also sparking participants’ curiosity, excitement, and interest.
