OH Wow! Children’s Museum Features Polish Scientist

Each year, Americans are encouraged to observe Polish American Heritage Month during the month of October by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of Poles and Polish American citizens whose ancestors came from Poland. This event
began in Philadelphia in 1981 and was adopted as a national celebration soon after.
And there is much and many to celebrate!
We at PolishYoungstown consider it our mission to educate and entertain the region on our rich Polish culture. Won’t you help us enlighten the young people in your life as well?
This year, in collaboration with the Oh Wow! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children’s Center for Science & Technology, we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Marie Skłodowska Curie winning the Nobel Prize in Chemistry with an event we are calling “Curious about Curie.”
Throughout the month of October, elementary students throughout the region as well as visitors to OH WOW! are invited to explore the discoveries of Curie as part of a special exhibit. On October 20 from 4:30-6 PM during a special after school event, attendees will get to participate in hands-on activities highlighting Curie’s methodology and discoveries. At that time three winners will be drawn, each receiving a four-pack of free admission tickets to OH WOW! valued at $28.00.
We hope that you will join us in the celebration…come to the Oh Wow!...use the downloadable information sheet to share some background about this Warsaw-born, progressive, female scientist with teachers and young students in your life…the coloring sheet is for K-3 and the word search is for 4-6.
