Happy Arbor Day!🌲🌳🌷
In honor of the last few days of April we celebrate Arbor Day and our final Citizen Science project! Arbor Day is a national holiday created to recognize the importance of trees. Here at McWane we decided to celebrate by taking a trip to Oak Mountain to practice tree and leaf identification with the help of the TreeSnap app! The TreeSnap app is a means for participants to record the location and health of particular tree species of interest. Scientists use the collected information to locate candidates for genetic sequencing and breeding programs.
Check our our stories to see how we used TreeSnap at Oak Mountain🌤🌿

ScienceAtHome wants to know how the brain works, and one of the best ways to study thinking, remembering, and learning is through video games. So gamers and want-to-be gamers, join McWane Science Center on this Citizen Science adventure and help the science community better understand the normal development of various cognitive skills.
So what is your gaming superpower? Have you ever thought about what makes you special as a gamer? Is your mind super-sharp? Do you have quick and creative problem-solving skills? Are you good at remembering? Skill Lab: Science Detectives wants to know. Skill Lab: Science Detective is a collection of minigames with a detective story theme that challenges your mind in different ways. The game enables you to test your gaming brain skills against yourself and other people. In this process, ScienceAtHome can generate a cognitive player profile of your gaming skills at different levels.
What will they do with this information you ask? Great question! They will make better more engaging educational games. But, they could also use this information to identify and understand common cognitive challenges and learn how to mediate in the early stages to prevent long-term impact.
20 Year of McWane Science Center McWane Science Center’s mission is to “spark wonder and curiosity about our world through hands-on science.” To accomplish this mission, McWane Science Center combines unique assets to create hands-on, science-learning experiences parents and teachers value and kids love. McWane Science Center has welcomed millions of visitors since opening its doors. Explorers — from ages 1 to 100 — flock year-round to see, to hear, to touch and to experience the wonder of science in one of the South’s most unique venues. McWane Science Center has a number of permanent exhibits that are a regular part of the science education experience. These include Itty Bitty Magic City, Explore! Collections Center, Alabama Dinosaurs and Sea Monsters, NatureScope, Fox 6 Weather Lab, Science on a Sphere, High Cycle, World of Water Aquarium, Shark and Ray Touch Tank, and the John W. Woods IMAX Dome Theater. McWane Science Center does not just focus on science, we strive to inspire children through science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and we believe great STEM learning involves inquisition. Students are not learning through lecture at McWane Science Center; they are learning by doing, asking questions, creating their own hypothesis, testing and re-thinking their own ideas and beliefs. McWane Science Center is affiliated with the Association of Science-Technology Centers.
