Children's Natural History Museum and Earthquake Exhibit
A call for volunteers
The Math Science Nucleus is expanding its Children's Natural History Museum to include interactive exhibits on how the Hayward Fault and associated faults molded the East Bay's landscape. The expansion is starting now and will complete over the summer in time for school opening. This will increase the museum by over 1000 square feet of exhibits, the largest children museum in southern Alameda County. These efforts are the precursor to opening to the Earthquake Trench and Walk in Central Park, Fremont in 2-3 years depending on funding.
If you are interested in getting the exhibits together, come to a meeting planned for Thursday, May 10 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. for input from the community and to find interested people in helping out with the Children's Natural History Museum. These meetings will focus on the new earthquake exhibits and how they tie into the main exhibit of the Irvington Fossils. We will also discuss several events that will be coming up during the summer and early fall, including a July 10 Student and a Teacher Reception; a reunion of some of the Boy Paleontologists in early September, 2007 and the 140th Anniversary in 2008 of the last devastating earthquake on the Hayward in Oct, 1868.
We are looking for dedicated community members who will help make this the largest Children's Museum in southern Alameda County. These meetings are at 4704 Eggers Drive in the conference room. Please RSVP if you plan to come to any of the meetings.
