Build an igloo, experiment with ice, or just enjoy the season this Saturday, February 15, at Igloo Build and the Science of Winter.
Dr. Bert Yankielun, engineer and author of the book How to Build an Igloo and Other Snow Structures, will be on hand to offer a demonstration, as well as instruction on the structural secrets of building with snow—from making an initial snow angel to placing the final block on the dome and sawing your way out.
From building igloos to experimenting with ice, it will be an exciting day filled with hands-on winter activities!
Food and drinks from Umpleby's will be available for purchase.

Information on Igloos
The Inuit of Northern Canada and Greenland designed and used igloos for protection from the Arctic weather. Learn more.
From Dr. Bert Yankielun's book, How to Build an Igloo and Other Snow Structures:
"The igloo, also spelled “iglu,” and sometimes called an aputiak, is a temporary winter shelter built by native Eskimos primarily for use in winter hunting camps. In their native language, Eskimos call themselves Inuit, meaning “the people.” They inhabit much of the Arctic from as far west as the Aleutian Islands of Alaska to as far east as the western coastline of Greenland."
Free with Museum admission or membership.
