Enjoy hands-on science with your young scientist. Each four-week session provides developmentally appropriate, informal learning experiences that support and enhance exploration, create excitement and facilitate scientific discoveries. The program is designed for children ages 3–5 years old with an accompanying adult. Participants must register for all four classes in each session. Our in-person sessions meet on Thursdays from 11am-12pm or Saturdays from 9am-10am or 11am-12pm and include access to the exhibit galleries after the program.
