The Joann Cowan Brown Botanical Garden is a HotSpot in the ecoEXPLORE program!
ecoEXPLORE (Experiences Promoting Learning Outdoors for Research and Education) is an incentive-based citizen science program for children in grades K-8. Developed by The North Carolina Arboretum, this innovative program combines science exploration with kid-friendly technology to foster a fun learning environment for children while encouraging them to explore the outdoors and participate in citizen science.
* It's currently ichthyology season (September 1 - November 1). Ichthyology is the study of fish. Through ecoEXPLORE you can earn an ichthyology badge.
(Note: There are no fish on the museum grounds, but North Carolina has 234 different species of fish, so go explore the outdoors and try to find some of them.)
Quick! Name the first inventor that comes to mind…. Was it a woman inventor? Women haven’t always had equal opportunities to be inventors but have overcome obstacles to create inventions that change our lives every day! Learn about them in #PicturingWomenInventors, a poster exhibition from @sitesExhibitions and @SI_Invention.
