Girls in STEM: Mary Anning Against the Rocks

May 18 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Austin Gardens Environmental Education Center Main Room
167 Forest Avenue, Oak Park IL 60302

Today we're looking back through time with Mary Anning – the most famous female paleontologist! We'll put on our Junior Paleontologist hats to look at fossils, both real and pretend, plus figure out where these prehistoric animals lived based on how they look. 


In the US, women are 48% of the workforce but only 27% of the STEM careers. This family-friendly program explores a different science-loving lady each session through story, art, and more!

Registration is for one child with an adult. Adult must stay for the duration — this is not a drop-off program.
