Science Saturdays

Science is Fun!


We love science at Sunset Zoo! From our animal residents to the natural settings we all inhabit, science surrounds us and we think it's pretty cool. Plus, in our own backyard, local researchers are uncovering exciting discoveries through the power of science.

What are Science Saturdays?


Science Saturdays offer families and guests of all ages fun, hands-on activities to discover this fascinating world. Featuring our Science Communication Fellows, this come-and-go event will share their research in a fun and new way.

Each Science Saturday features different demonstrations and workshops for attendees, so you will learn something new each time you attend. The event is held indoors in the Zoo's entry and education facility, the Nature Exploration Center. Science Saturdays held rain or shine, no registration required and are offered free with your Zoo admission for the day.
