Our Preschool-Level Workshop Themes
Digging for Dinosaurs
Kids are introduced to the differences between meat-eating and plant-eating animals. They have the opportunity to look at some dinosaur teeth up close and work as paleontologists, by participating in a mini dinosaur dig that engages their attention and helps them improve their scientific knowledge.
Children become an animal, identify animal sounds, and learn all about animal babies and parents.
Wiggly World of Worms
This workshop provides preschoolers with an opportunity to get their hands dirty while learning all about worms. They work with magnifying glasses to get an up-close look at the lives and habits of worms.
This workshop introduces kids to the science behind the sounds all around them. Kids experiment with a wave motion model and a twirling tube to help them understand that sound travels in waves and can be heard in a variety of pitches. They also learn about the everyday materials that make a variety of special effects noises in the movies and create their own special effects sounds.
Keep in Touch
Children learn what their sense of touch tells them about the world and they also learn that some objects are safe to touch while others are not. The preschoolers are presented with the challenge of identifying a variety of objects using only their sense of touch. They also experiment with an interesting material and make their very own creation.
Eye to Eye
This workshop introduces preschoolers to their sense of sight. They experiment with magnifying glasses, kaleidoscopes, and binoculars. Kids also interact with a variety of optical illusions to illustrate that their eyes can sometimes play tricks on them.
