2023 Back to School at the Bean Report

This is the Place: Discover Utah's Diversity

Welcome back to school everyone! Students and families alike came and enjoyed the event. As they explored the museum, they participated in various activities, each giving a sneak-peak at an upcoming event in the semester. People were immediately excited to finish their passport, get all the stamps, and spin the prize wheel. We had fun games and trivia to advertise our game and trivia nights, and brain-tickling riddles and eye-catching costumes to support our Murder Mystery Dinner. We also showed off our live invertebrates to showcase the nature experienceships and Halloween night.

Our photo booth was available for those who wanted to capture the moment, and had the opportunity to snap a pic with one of our specimens, the most popular being the otter. Our new Utah exhibit was also on display, with a curiosity cart showing off some of the local fauna and flora. People especially loved the great horned owl. Cookies and brownies were also available for people to enjoy while they explored the museum. A very busy and exciting night at the Life Science Museum.
