Families Exploring Science Together
Children and their parents are partners in a day of discovery and hands on science experiences.
How science really works!
Curiosity + Joy + Dreams + Thrills + Wonder + Interest + Surprise + Creativity = Discovery
We are all scientists! Children and scientists have much in common. Naturally inquisitive young children ask endless questions, they may spend half an hour watching a bug crawl on the floor, experiment by pouring water into soil or mixing different colors of paints or add blocks to a tower until it falls. They draw conclusions about the way things work and they learn from and share information with others.
