Little Scientists Week 2020

Little Scientists Week

March 10 - 15

Best for kids 5 & younger

Your budding scientist will explore the wonders the world during this special week dedicated to preschool children.

Watch little learners become scientists in a miniature laboratory that appeal to their interests and their senses! Designed with the science center’s youngest visitors in mind, this week is dedicated to learning how to make scientific observations using taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing. 

Using their senses, your child will explore the slinky forest, use real science tools like microscopes, identify scents, investigate different textures and more!

Little Scientists Week activities are free with admission to the science center. For more information, please call 419.244.2674.
