Materials for Activity

  • Clipboards, paper, and pencils

Preparation for Activity

  • Plan for the group to visit a local science museum. Arrange for transportation, fees (ask about a group rate), and parent volunteers so that all participants will be able to explore the museum in a small group with an adult.
  • Prepare and distribute written notices and permission forms. Include a heads-up that participants will be invited to look for miracles while the group is at the museum.

Description of Activity

Arrange to go as a group to a local museum that has a science theme.

Assign small groups to tour the museum and encourage each person to look for miracles as they explore. Tell everyone when and where to re-gather; make sure you will have at least 15 minutes to be together at the museum before participants need to leave.

When you re-gather, invite participants to report on their observations. Guide discussion with these questions:

  • What did you see that was awesome and amazing? Which exhibits showed something you would consider a miracle? What is the science behind the miracle? What about the miracle does science fail to completely explain?
  • Do you think that science itself is a miracle? Does it amaze you that our species has been able to figure out so much about our world?
  • Is a science museum a logical place or a surprising place to find miracles? Why or why not?

Remind everyone that miracles can be found in both the explained and the unexplained.
