Tricks aside, science is the real treat in this workshop! Join us as we travel around the world and then back home to SI to look at the various ways mummification takes place. We will highlight one of the most peculiar objects in the museum’s collection and experiment with making our own mummy from an apple.

This fall, Super Science will be hosted by guest scientist Ashley Gary, The Wildlife Host!

Ashley Gary is a science communicator known online as The Wildlife Host (@thewildlifehost). Since 2018 she has been sharing her love and passion for wildlife with her community on both Instagram and Twitter. Along with sparking curiosity in people about the natural world, she also promotes positivity and following your dreams. It was following her dreams and forging ahead that lead to the creation of The Wildlife Host brand and the opportunity to reach thousands of people with the message of appreciation and stewardship of the biodiversity around us.
