Spend time with a scientist at Discovery Museum

WINCHESTER – Join the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum on Saturday as it hosts another science-filled day with a scientist.

Ryan Hall, marketing and membership organizer for the Discovery Museum, explained “Saturday with a Scientist”  is part of a new exhibit that will be opening next month.

“Themes for Saturday with a Scientist and Water/Ways Yoga are currently based on water and how water affects us,” Hall said. “In societies across the globe, water serves as a source of peace and contemplation. Many faiths revere water as a sacred symbol.”

Amanda Sills, associate scientist, Environmental Consulting & Technology Inc., will share with guests the impact of water pollution on larval fishes in rivers and streams as well as the basics of identifying larval fishes.

The talk will provide an opportunity for hands-on experience for the whole family.

“Authors and artists are inspired by the complex character of water – a substance that is seemingly soft and graceful that is yet a powerful and nearly unstoppable force,” Hall said. “We encourage people to understand the importance of water. Without it, we wouldn’t be here today.”
