Sensory Night at Museum

It was an evening with happy memories created as children and their families toured the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History. The museum was closed this evening so that individuals could tour and explore the museum at their own pace. ASRC Program Director Monica Jimenez-Brown organized this event. There was also a sensory station where museum staff assisted children in creating and playing with products such as moon dough and exploding snow. The moon dough is made with powdered tempura paint, baby oil, and flour. The exploding snow uses shaving cream and baking soda, mixed until it forms the consistency of 'snow'. It is then formed into a snowball, and dropped into a container with a small amount of vinegar. Great science experiments with ingredients you may have at home.
The Sensory Night at the Museum was just one of many events during Autism Awareness Month. For the individuals with autism, and their families, autism awareness, and acceptance will continue. Join us and many other families at the many events the Autism Spectrum Resource Center will hold throughout the year.
