The Mill Calendar
This is a Science Mill adventure you can sink your teeth into! Encounter the predator we all love to fear when you search for shark teeth in the Fossil Dig. Separate fact from fiction with our Shark Week factoids. Watch giant megalodon shark teeth print on our 3D printer, and see if you can figure out where the name “megalodon” comes from.
Join us on Friday, July 27 at 11am, 1pm and 3pm for a special presentation by Dr. Jessica Dutton, Texas State University professor and shark researcher!
Be sure to catch a special showing of Great White Shark 3D, too! Discover the truth behind this powerful underwater creature and why great white sharks are misunderstood. The film will play at select times throughout Shark Week, and Meerkats 3D will continue to run in between showings of Great White Shark 3D.
All Shark Week activities are free with admission.
Join us when Dr. Kold demonstrates the amazing transformative powers of liquid nitrogen. Witness freezing science experiments, and discover how to make ice cream in under a minute. If combining fun and learning makes you hungry, you’re in luck - everyone in the audience will get a scoop of ice cream!
Dr. Kold’s presentations are at 11am and 1pm, lasts approximately 45 minutes, and is open to all ages. This event is free with admission, but seating in the theater is limited. We recommend arriving early!
Note: Due to the Dr. Kold event, we’re adjusting our 3D movie schedule for the day. On Saturday, August 4, Meerkats 3D is showing at noon, 2pm, 2:30pm, 3pm and 4pm.
Often referred to as “Radiolab for kids,” Tumble is a pioneering science podcast that explores stories of science discovery. Co-hosts Lindsay Patterson and Marshall Escamilla will be presenting “The Surprising Story of Sea Stars’ Sticky Feet.” The story was inspired by a question from a listener: “How do sea stars grip onto rocks?” The answer leads to a discovery that turned 200 years of accepted science on its head. With help from a leading sea star scientist, interactive games, and original music, Lindsay and Marshall tell a story of how simple questions and experiments can challenge what we think we know to be true. There will also be a special opportunity to record a question for the podcast, after the show.
Seating is limited. We recommend signing up in advance here to reserve your seat.
