BIG news – Check Out the The Fab Lab at OMSI!
“Crazy Aunt Lindsey” aka the fabulous Lindsey Murphy partnered with OMSI to create a 4-part video series exploring some of our favorite scientific concepts. Join us as we dive into astronomy, zoology, chemistry, and biology through fun experiments with items you can find at home.
Meet Crazy Aunt Lindsey!
Crazy Aunt Lindsey is on a mission to bring accessibility, inclusivity, and representation to STEM. Explore with Aunt Lindsey and The Fab Lab, one of YouTube’s most beloved, longest running kids science webseries!

Water is incredible! From surface tension to diffusion we can do experiments at home to learn about the properties of water. Check out OMSI’s Science at Home videos and experiments to learn more!
Episode 4: Juneteenth Cookout!
Whether you’ve celebrated Juneteenth before or it’s completely new to you, everyone’s invited to Lindsey’s cookout! In the fourth episode of The Fab Lab at OMSI we explore Juneteenth, and while it’s important to make the connection to slavery, the day also serves as a celebration of Black history, ancestry, and culture. We dive deep into DNA and ancestry, exploring the biological code that holds the story of how we each came to be.
