      Astronomy Day

      Learn how to build an insulated, sturdy house strong enough to support the weight of a polar bear!

      Dr. Bert Yankielun, engineer and author of the book How to Build an Igloo and Other Snow Structures, will be on hand to offer a demonstration, as well as instruction on the structural secrets of building with snow—from making an initial snow angel to placing the final block on the dome and sawing your way out. Dr. Yankielun will provide a quick lesson on how to build an igloo, and will be on hand to assist igloo-builders with the process.

      Dr. Yankielun’s instructional session starts at 10:30am and the igloo-building portion of the day ends at 2pm.

      Cost: Payment required - $0-16 Free with museum admission.
