iLabs: Museum Friends-only Event!!!

September 28, 2013

FREE Friends member-only event

SOLVE THE MYSTERY: Prairie Dog Ghost Town
NC Museum of Natural SciencesNature Research Center Investigate Labs & Naturalist Center

Thursday, October 10 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM
Solve the Mystery!

Scenario: A hawk researcher, investigating the recent exodus of hundreds of starving birds from their usual desert habitat, uncovers an even bigger crisis looming. His discovery and the efforts of a Park Service Ranger are all that stand between them and a possible ecological disaster. Two vital questions must be answered to prevent this.

As part of the Museum’s Science Thursday programming, family teams will test their investigative skills as they follow in the ranger’s footsteps. Collecting clues from the Investigate Labs and the Naturalist Center, teams will put together pieces of the mystery.  If your family can solve the mystery, you might just save the lives of hundreds of animals, and possibly even a human or two along the way.

Each family team will receive a small token at the end of the evening to honor their participation in the event.

Register Now! Deadline to register is Friday October 4th

This event is limited to the first 20 family teams who register.  There is no fee, but registration is required.  Registration is open to all Friends of the Museum members and anyone interested in becoming a Friends member when they register.  Confirmation and event details will be emailed prior to the event.



Is there a limit to the number of people on a family team?  Yes, teams should include no more than 6 people.

Are there age restrictions?  All ages of family members are welcome; however, each team must include someone 18 or older.
