Join the Mini Explorers Club!

The world is an amazing place, and the Mini Explorers Club invites our littlest explorers to learn all about it with their families! This FREE program for families of children ages 3 - 5 encourages young scientists and their family lab assistants to explore and discover the world around them through Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) programming designed to spark curiosity and ignite imaginations. 

This program includes story time, STEAM activities and strategies to engage your mini explorer and promote STEAM learning. A snack and free play will kick off every session!

Tuesday, June 11 or 25
Topic: Flowers
All workshops take place in the KIDSPACE Science Studio. 
Summer brings all kinds of interesting plants and flowers to see, touch and smell. This month, your preschooler will learn about all the parts of flowers and what they need to grow, use their senses to observe flowers and then create their own variety.

Budding botanists and horticulturists will plant a seed to watch it grow, dissect a plant to uncover its parts and plant a flower to delve deeper into the life cycle.




Upcoming Dates and Topics 

July 9 or 23:
Bubbles
Explore patterns and properties of all kinds of bubbles. Collaborate with other Mini Explorer families on how to blow the best bubbles. Listen to others’ ideas and then share solutions as you explore giant bubbles and create a bubble wand.

August 6 or 13: Watermelons
Investigate watermelons and discover what makes them so delicious. Use that new information to answer old questions and come up with some new ones. Use all five senses to observe watermelons and then invent a device that will remove watermelon seeds.
