Discover Butterflies at miSci
Today until Sunday, Apr 2, 2017
miSci (museum of innovation and science), 15 Nott Terrace Heights, Schenectady NY
For a small child, there are few things more magical than rainbows... and one would be: butterflies! Escape cabin fever, and discover hundreds of brilliantly colored native butterflies at miSci.
Watch Butterflies at every stage of life - from egg to the Chrysalis chamber to adulthood. Learn about different species of butterflies from the area, what butterflies eat, and how scientists use butterflies as examples for new technology.
Insider tip: Because butterflies need a warm, humid environment to regulate body temperature, you can expect the butterfly house to be very warm in contrast with the cool museum, so dress in layers.
