Despite the challenges that black scientists faced over 100 years ago, George Washington Carver was successful in discovering how to improve soil quality. Let’s find out how soil affects the food we eat by making colorful still-life creations, using dirt as paint and then decorating them with dried beans.

At 11:30AM, families can enjoy a storytime program in the Gund Theater; all ages welcome.
