Memphis Explorers Challenge

Looking for something fun and educational to do on your own, with your family, or with a friend?  

Join the Memphis Explorers Challenge!

Explorer Challenge Kits contain five different activities and experiments, as well as materials to do them. These must be picked up at the Museum Store and cost $15

Explorers Challenge Packets will have multiple activities, such as scavenger hunts, crafts, experiments, and more. Packets will consist of 5 individual challenges that will be sold as a digital bundle - all 5 for $10

We are proud to present our first Explorer Challenge Kit, Fun With Physical Science, which contains hands-on materials thanks to feedback from explorers like you!

  • Fun With Physical Science Kit- Jump into science with hands-on STEM experiments that explore surface tension, air pressure, chemical reactions, and more.
  • Sustainability Challenge Packet - Explore sustainable living in our homes and neighborhoods. It is great for students grades 4-8, and was developed in collaboration with the National Informal STEM Education Network
  • Constellations Challenge Packet - Explore the night sky's constellations, including their stories and how to find them
  • Nature Challenge Packet- Developed by Lichterman Nature Center. Explore birds, trees/leaves, insects, pollinators, and clouds.

Try one or try all of them!  Each challenge you complete earns you an explorer certificate in that subject.

This challenge set is great for school age students. All proceeds help to support programming at the Pink Palace Museum. Check back soon as Challenge topics will be updated regularly.
