Buffalo Museum of Science hosting virtual science fair

While the museum is closed, there is a lot of learning going on online

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Museum of Science may be closed due to social distancing, but there is still plenty of learning happening on its Facebook page. 

The Museum and the Tifft Nature Preserve recently launched a virtual science fair to keep kids busy while they're home from school.  Each day, they post a different activity for kids and parents to do with items you likely already have at home. Then, they ask families to post the results of their projects using the hashtag #ScienceBuff."

In the video below, Sarajane Golack-Green, the museum's director of programs and experiences,  demonstrates one of the activities, colorful magic milk. 

Prizes for the virtual science fair include admission to the museum when it re-opens, and a grand prize of a birthday party there. 

On the weekends, the Buffalo Museum of Science is also hosting virtual tours on its Facebook page.
