Preschool Saturday Science Classes
Get school-ready with science! Introduce your preschooler to the fascinating world of S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math). They will learn scientific vocabulary by reading a unique story, experiment with developmentally appropriate science through hands-on investigations and develop important skills to prepare for success in school and in life.
$15 Members / $20 Non-Members
Add on an optional $3 Take-Out Science Kit: Extend your child's learning beyond our Preschool Science session with an additional inquiry-based activity parents can do at home with their toddlers and preschoolers. Also includes resources to enhance science exploration between a child and parent.
