Museum Hosts Family Friendly New Year’s Bash

Local News

It’s a new year’s event for the entire family. The International Museum of Arts and Science in McAllen is starting a new tradition that inspires fun and learning.

Public Programs Manager for the IMAS Bethany Connor says, “We are celebrating New Years Eve by letting the kids get extra messy. We have tons of fun and messy science and art projects.”

The projects are not only meant to be entertaining, but are also designed to teach children science concepts in a way they can understand.

 “We’re doing spaghetti painting and exploding artwork… over in the science lab we’re doing a slime treasure hunt, where the kids are literally digging through a pool of slime to find treasures,” Said Connor.

These are just some of the activities they plan in celebration of 2016. Among them, a few planned demonstrations and other activities that did not involve the messy theme. The event also hosted various open play centers for kids to roam and play while supervised. The event was designed for the entire family in mind.

 “Come on out, we’re open today until 8 PM all activities are included with general admission. We’re just having a good time getting messy,” Connor Said.
