Little kids are natural scientists! Our Young Explorers and their parent(s) use lab tools to conduct science experiments, explore nature and create science-based art. In addition to introducing our Young Explorers to scientific concepts, we also work on fine motor skills, encourage sensory play, and help develop critical thinking skills through our hands-on experiments and activities. Fun for kids and parents! At least one parent/guardian/adult must attend.
Ages 3-5 years
