June 14th: Dr. Petro (AKA Greg Hinterlong), Why Do We Experiment?

Science experiments are always fun to do, but have you ever asked yourself about the reasoning behind performing experiments? Humans have always been inquisitive, needing to understand why things behave in a certain way. The first people to try and develop a theory behind their observations were the Greeks – philosophers like Pythogoras, Aristotle, and Plato. These great minds started the development of what is now known as the scientific method. Dr. Petro is a long time friend of the Petroleum Museum and has been conducting experiments at Family Science Nights for many years. Bring your lunch and your family to this very special event where scientists young and old will enjoy learning and experimenting with Dr. Petro.
