Unearth Your Inner Scientist – Salt Lake City, Ut

At the base of the Wasatch Mountain Range rests the Natural History Museum of Utah’s Rio Tinto Center, part of the University of Utah and an active research center. Inside you’ll find fascinating fossils (dinosaurs!), bugs from six continents, and some 40,000 marine mollusca (a.k.a. seashells and the like). Among a full calendar of family and kid programming are STEAM-based Saturday Discover Classes targeted for Kindergarten and 1st graders, 2nd and 3rd graders, or 4th and 5th graders. All ages can bug out!
