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! 

NEW - Even more opportunities to be a Mini Explorer!
The club is growing! We’ve added a second General Public program on Tuesdays and now have a Saturday session for added convenience. Choose the day and time that works with your schedule!
