Matters of the Heart
February seems like the perfect month to discuss matters of the heart, and this Saturday the discussion turns into demonstrations of exactly how the heart works during the monthly Science Saturday Program. During the program, each student will build a simple water jar demonstration showing how the heart works. The program concludes with the museum’s educator performing a dissection of a beef heart, for those who are not faint of heart. (This portion of the program is only open to those who wish to attend.) The free program begins at 10:00 am in the Tombaugh Education Building at the New Mexico Museum of Space History.
Science Saturday is free to the public and happens every second Saturday of the month from 10:00 am until noon. It is designed to be a fun and educational program for kids of all ages although it focuses on cadets from six to sixteen, with a different scientific focus each month.
