by BWW News Desk
Preschoolers are intrepid explorers, innately curious about the world around them. Saturday Science, a new Staten Island Children's Museum program designed for 3-5 year-olds and their parents, will help them increase their understanding of the natural world with activities that encourage problem solving and introduce them to the basic elements of scientific reasoning.
These often messy, sometimes loud and always enjoyable sessions will include hands-on experimentation with Ooblek (sometimes solid/sometimes liquid substance popularized by Dr. Seuss), bubbles, sound and light. Created by the Museum's long-time curriculum developer/scientist/educator, this six-week long program will engage pint-sized scientists in a fun and age appropriate way, while encouraging parents to reinforce their children's critical thinking skills.
Offered in two six-week sessions, Saturday Science is a great way for families to spend Saturday mornings with their preschoolers performing messy, fun experiments and increasing brain power at the same time!
Session 1: Saturdays, January 5 through February 9, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
