Pirate School:
The Science of Pirates!

LICM Theater

Saturday, May 2
and Sunday, May 3
at 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Seafarers have always pushed science and technology forward and who better to captivate and expand children’s scientific horizons than the swaggering staff of Pirate School? This swashbuckling adventure features a mischievous blend of interactive clown theater, eccentric props, adept magic, a rich musical score and cartoon-like sound effects. Children will learn about simple machines, optics, navigation/astronomy, aero/hydrodynamics, and of course things that go BOOM! Kids are encouraged to attend in costume for "Pirate School."

Ages: 7 and up. Fee: $5 with museum admission.
