Explorations! Field Trip
Date/time: June 21, 2019 at 10:00am
Explorations! Field Trips offer Rockville Science Center supporters the chance to take a more in-depth look at the science or technology at work in a particular outdoor location or science/technology-related organization in the Rockville-DC area, and to meet and enjoy the company of other RSC supporters. Unless specified otherwise, our Explorations! Field Trips are open to adults and children aged 10 and older, with an accompanying adult required for those under 18.  Explorations! are free for Rockville Science Center supporters to attend.

Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in DC showcases the continued wax sculpting that Madame Tussaud did herself over 200 years ago. Please join us for this behind-the-scenes tour as we are taken through the exhibit, past celebrities, sports stars, and presidents, to see what goes into creating these lifelike statues. The museum staff will explain the wax itself and what the casting process entails in order to capture as much detail about the subject as possible.The underlying structure within the statues will also be discussed to show the engineering and design work that goes into one of these statues so it can stably stand on its own.
