What's Happening at the Montshire

Join Montshire Science Educator Mike Fenzel for a demonstration, as well as instruction on building with snow—from making an initial snow angel to placing the final block on the dome and sawing your way out.

Igloo Build and the Science of Winter

Learn how to build an insulated, sturdy house strong enough to support the weight of a polar bear!

Dr. Bert Yankielun, engineer and author of the book How to Build an Igloo and Other Snow Structures, will be on hand to offer a demonstration, as well as instruction on the structural secrets of building with snow—from making an initial snow angel to placing the final block on the dome and sawing your way out. Dr. Yankielun will provide a quick lesson on how to build an igloo, and will be on hand to assist igloo-builders with the process.

Dr. Yankielun’s instructional session starts at 10am and the igloo-building portion of the day ends at 3pm.

It will be a day filled with hands-on winter activities, including one of the museum’s longest-running traditions— Igloo Build!
