Discovery Night: Remix

Event by: Mississippi Children’s Museum
Where: Virtual


Discovery Night is the Mississippi Children’s Museum’s signature family fundraising event hosted by MCM Partners. This year, due to current circumstances, the event will look a bit different than before – a remix of sorts!

Continuing with the theme of experimentation and innovation, Discovery Night will bring the fun right to your home on October 18th. Discovery Kits will be available for all age groups – even the adults! These kits will include age appropriate experiments, encouraging imagination and play through STEM. Developing these skills is vital to the creation of lifelong learners and promoting positive futures for Mississippi’s children; so even though a large scale event is not possible, we want to provide these opportunities at home. Discovery Kits for the adults will include their own experiments – a mixology kit to help create your very own signature cocktail.
