The Because Science store is under construction! We anticipate opening fall 2022, and the exact dates will be released when the city gives us the OK!
Until then, hang out with us at Adams Morgan Day: We'll be running a kid's activity area with free demos & projects, plus a photo booth with prizes! And we'll also set up outside the storefront with a mini boutique, chalk art, and free goodie bags. AND we'll be at Marie Reed with the other artists selling our handmade gifts. It's Sunday September 11 in Adams Morgan.
The store is at 1759 Columbia Rd NW in Washington DC, and the Adams Morgan Day festivities will occur along Columbia Rd and 18th Street. Details: https://www.admoday.com/
Stop by during Adams Morgan Day for free postcards, stickers, and other fun science-y goodies
We'll be in the kid's area with demos but you don't have to be a kid to participate!
We want to include you too! Just reply to this email with a US mailing address and we will send you a fun package with science-y goodies!
We'll also be livestreaming on Sept 11 so you can join virtually: We'll be doing this on Instagram, so make sure you're following us! (@BecauseScience_DC)
Photo isn't necessarily what we'd send but is some of what we'll have in the store.
