Children will learn about science by touching, feeling, and even tasting their science experiments. We leave children inspired and hungry to learn more. We spark imaginative learning!

Fluttering Birds: Children will be excited to learn all about their fine feathered friends when they take an up close look at birds. They will discover how to match bird mates, see what eggs are produced by which species; learn how a bird’s beak is a tool and how to identify different bird’s songs. Preschoolers will take home bird warblers to practice their bird songs at home.

Butterflies: Preschoolers discover all about butterflies – where they come from, stages of their growth, how they
eat and even make some of their own to take home during this workshop.

Animal Friends: Roar with the lions and explore the animal kingdom. Learn about different types of families and how to talk like the animals. Examine a variety of animal coverings such as fur, fins, and feathers. Transform into your favorite animal when you create your very own mask.

Wiggly World of Worms: This workshop will provide preschoolers with an opportunity to get their hands dirty while learning all about worms. They will work with magnifying glasses to get an up close look at the lives and habits of worms.

Bug Buddies: Students will learn about insects beginning with their unique eyesight and the way they defend
themselves against predators. See how camouflage works and take home fun finger puppets!

Color Lab: This workshop will introduce preschoolers to the exciting world of color. They will make a new friend while learning about the colors of the rainbow and will experiment with their creative side during an activity on color mixing. Demonstrations will be conducted to introduce students to the primary colors as well as color mixing.

Lights On: What is light? Mix colors of light and explore the rainbow of light.

Science of Music: Boom, tap, smack, cha-cha-cha, listen to the sounds and rhythm of the science of music. Children will feel, hear and see the vibrations that help create music in this hands-on exploration.

Mad Mixtures: Volcanoes and more simple chemistry fun, and make your own modeling dough to take home.

Energy & Motion: Children explore the concept of energy and how energy gets things moving in this workshop that uses toys to help explain simple energy ideas. They will take home toys called spring things that will help them remember how energy and motion are related.
