Tu Bi’Shvat, is here and the Bloomfield Science Museum will take a different look at the holiday this weekend (29 – 30.1). The new year of the trees is traditionally celebrated in Israel by planting trees. The museum will mark the holiday with activities and interactive demonstrations that focus on the connection between planting trees and global warming. This program is intended to raise public awareness and encourage the active involvement on issues of climate change, as part of the ACCENT (Action on Climate Change Through Engagement, Networks and Tools) project.
On Saturday at 13:00 there will be a performance of “Darwin’s Journey” – a show for the whole family that tells of Darwin’s return home after a long journey. Darwin is met by Elizabeth, his pet bird, who is jealous of the birds he collected on his trip. Elizabeth tries to convince Darwin to make some “improvements” to her natural form. A comic-scientific look at the principles of evolution.
