FORT WORTH- How can kids keep their cool this summer?

The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History has the solution for chilling out when the temperature heats up.

Guests to the museum July 10-13 can experience a variety of activities, all designed to help them discover some cool science concepts while beating the heat.

The extreme cold demonstrations include using liquid nitrogen and dry ice, playing with “snow” each afternoon made with sodium polyacrylate, and Afternoon Melt Down - a hands-on workshop where guests can find ways to save popsicles from the heat, determine which colors keep them cool and create wintry sculptures.

On Wednesday, July 10, kids can say “Happy Birthday” to the museum’s favorite longneck dinosaur with some cool liquid nitrogen ice cream and appearances by Dynamo himself and his other mascot friends. Ice cream and other treats will be frozen and ready to serve at 11:15 a.m. and noon.

All activities are included with paid exhibit admission.
