Preschool Topics

All of our programs can be adapted to suit the interests and understanding of pre-school children.

Children will learn about science by touching, feeling, and even tasting their science experiments. We leave children inspired and hungry to learn more. We spark imaginative learning!


Programs available for preschoolers:



  • Adventures in Air: Learn how air is used and why it is important in our lives. Make a tornado right in the classroom. Learn how airplanes use air to fly and take home your own cloud climber.
