Sept. 11

Junior Forensics at Skeletons: Museum of Osteology (10301 S Sunnylane Rd). Through a hands-on activity, students learn to “read” the features of a human skull to determine: age, sex, physical trauma and/or illness. Junior Forensics is a more family-friendly version of the classic Forensic Night event, but parental discretion is still advised. This event involves replica human skulls cast from real trauma cases. $20. 11:15 a.m. & 2:30 p.m.

Sept. 12
