Port Huron Museum Presents Big on Bats Exhibition

The Port Huron Museum announce another Family Program associated with the fall exhibit Robot Zoo, open now, and running through January 9. The Robot Zoo is an exciting new high technology exhibit specifically designed to stimulate interest and the minds of school-aged children K – 8th grade, and carry them and adults beyond the technology of video games. It is a study of the form and function of real animals through their biomechanical counterparts – robots. These Family Programs are designed with fun activities to complement and reinforce the learning points presented at the Robot Zoo exhibit, such as; how live animals move and adapt to their environment.

This Big on Bats program focuses on learning all about bats, the only flying mammals. Learn how they fly in the dark by using their internal sonar system. They come in a spectacular array of colors shapes and sizes. There are more than 1,100 species of bats found worldwide, and they live on every continent in the world except Antarctica. Children and adults can have fun learning much about them during this Big on Bats family program.

These Family Programs are intended for children age 6 and older, and families are encouraged to attend.

Each program will have a one hour instructional session, followed by fun learning activities to illustrate and reinforce the information the children received during the instruction period. The total program is two hours, including activity time which follows with an open session so the entire family can spend as much time as they wish, doing some or all of the various activities.
