Young children are natural scientists. They wonder and experiment to learn about the world they live in. Children and their parents will freely explore hands-on science centers each week. Our open-ended activities let kids decide what to investigate and also allow a wide age range of children to experiment at their own level. Parents experience new discoveries with their child, get ideas for activities to do at home, and receive resources about child development. This is a drop-in program, arrive when you can and stay as long or as little as you want. Come experiment with us!
