This weekend, Nashville will get to experience a pop-up before its summer tour comes to an end.
Nature’s Escape, an interactive learning experience, provides an outdoor activity for families. The pop-up is insect-focused, aiming to fuel kids’ curiosity and scientific discoveries through play.
Participants will make their way through science-based activities like the “Bug Out” room where they can catch and dodge flying “bugs,” test their aim with the bug spray game “Zap Zone,” and learn how STEM bug spray works with the “STEM Cycle.” Participants will also receive STEM samples.
Musician Pharrell Williams announced the Nature’s Escape exhibit in June at his Something In The Water music festival. It has made a stop in Chicago and Los Angeles and will conclude in Nashville.
“As a dad, I love to give my kids fun ways to cultivate their curiosity, which is a trait that has fueled my life as a creator, artist and advocate,” Williams said in a news release. “We’re proud to be partnering with STEM to inspire learning and scientific discovery, and to fuel growth through equitable schooling and education.”
This isn’t STEM and Williams’ only partnership. STEM also contributed $1 million to Williams’ educational organization that helps with nature-based education with its mirco-school YELLOWHAB.
Nature’s Escape will take place this weekend at the Tomato Art Fest at 1001 Woodland Street. It starts this Friday from 4 to 7 pm It will continue Saturday from 11 am to 7 pm
