Annual Swarm


Insects swarm to accomplish instinctual goals.

They move, fly and build as one.

By working together, they can do so much more than they can do alone.

This year, the Science Museum is opening a new exhibit that focuses on pollinators and plants that are native to the region.

Alone, we risk watching this population dwindle, causing ripple effects across the planet.

Together, we can build an environment that promotes sustainability and provides a safe space for learning about these critical creatures.

Donate to the Annual Campaign today to be a part of our Swarm.

Join us Sunday, May 6th from 4 – 7 pm at Parkway Brewing Co. for the Science Museum of Western Virginia’s ANNUAL SWARM.  All proceeds from this event help the museum to continue creating a strong STEM community.  Sunday’s event will feature Parkway beer, music by Empty Bottles, and food by Center Stage. Support science in your community by bringing your swarm! #findmyswarm
