The Rochester Museum and Science Center is hosting a week of programs focused on various portions of the animal kingdom as part of its schedule for kids on school break. Events continue on Wednesday with "Insect Investigators," which features cool crawlies from the Seneca Park Zoo and presenters from Cornell University. Thursday's and Friday's events are dedicated to more cold-blooded characters, with presentations from the Reptile Guys (local pet store owners and reptile educators) and a look at some of RMSC's amphibians. Saturday and Sunday conclude the packed week with a consideration of our own biological class: mammals. With representatives (human and otherwise) from Wildlife Defenders and World of Wildlife Education Encounters, the diversity of mammals is sure to astound the kids.
Animal-related events continue on Wednesday, February 18, and runs through Sunday, February 22, at the Rochester Museum and Science Center, 657 East Avenue. All events are from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Free with regular museum admission: $13 for adults; $11 for children; free for children under 3 years old. rmsc.org.
