Life has found ways of surviving even in the most unnatural of spaces. Learn how animals are adapting to life within our cities and how humans are learning to adapt to life in space. Join the U-M Museum of Natural History experts for hands-on stations that are set up to engage the whole family in science learning!

This Family Reading and Science Workshop will include an Interactive Graphic Novel, Transmissions: Gone Viral, available for anyone to explore (perfect for ages 8 and up). Join the Metro City Science Team as they investigate a series of crow deaths in their urban neighborhood. Working with a zoo scientist and a mosquito hunter, the young detectives collect and analyze evidence and eventually identify a disease and stop it from spreading. This is a first look at a brand-new electronic comic book developed by the New York Hall of Science!
