Science - we dig it - and we're guessing that since you're here, you do too. We're also guessing that you've got lots of questions. Things like, why do crystal jellyfish glow green, did dinosaurs really have feathers, and will pond scum become the new oil?
It's questions like these that caused us to create the Denver Museum of Nature & Science social media networks and blog. We'd like to start a conversation with you - a conversation about science that's easy and available to anyone who's ever asked the question, "Why?"
It's a conversation that's already begun in some cases - visitors talking with docents, students talking with teachers, or people just talking with one another while walking around in the exhibit halls. Our goal is to extend those chats onto the Web, so that even more people can be included in the discussion, and even more knowledge can be gathered and gained.
The main thing is we want to hear from you.
We'll do our part by giving you a look inside the Museum world - everything from sneak peeks on new exhibitions to what's happening with us in the world of science. All we need from you is what you think, what you know, and what you dig about science.
In other words, we're glad you're here. Now the conversation can really get started.
Welcome, and happy posting!
As an education-based organization, we believe in the importance of open exchange and learning. In order to maintain a family friendly and respectful environment, we do moderate comments made on our social media networks and blogs. While most comments will remain posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can.
We are dedicated to providing our visitors with a quality experience - whether it be online or at the Museum. We will address all constructive criticisms quickly and efficiently as long as they are not abusive, offensive, inappropriate, profane (including expletives and letters followed by dashes) or illegal.
