Dear GNSI members and friends,

Remember to join us this evening for a exploration of the Smithsonian's new Q?rius education center. Now in existence for about a year, Q?rius is a place that was created specifically for "teens and tweens" and their families as a new type of education center, pairing unusual and fun experiences in science and making sense of them in terms of everyday life. It is a great and flexible space, with over 6000 collection objects that can be looked at closely and manipulated, providing sophisticated tools and equipment for study.

EVENT DATE & TIME: Next Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 5:30 p.m.

Come ready to engage others and create ideas for how we might engage young visitors to Q?rius in 
helping to add to the fun of science through art!
