Little Learners

Spend time together!

Little Learners in Harsco Science Center is the perfect program for moms and dads of preschoolers to spend time together and foster an early love of science while enjoying hands-on activities.


This program is offered every Wednesday and Saturday morning at 9:30 am through December 2019. Each session includes a variety of hands-on projects and science experiments, as well as books, songs and videos. We also allow for plenty of independent exploration and free play within KidsPlace before, during and after structured activities. Because space for this program is limited, we encourage advance purchase of tickets.

January - May 2019 Topic: Nature (tickets available soon!)

*PLEASE NOTE: While Kids Place will be unavailable 1/28 - 1/31, Little Learners will still take place on 1/30 in our special exhibit gallery.

From January through May Little Learners will be exploring different aspects of our world; from plants to animals and everything in between. We will be observing the world around us, and learning how to improve our world it at the same time. Using real world tools and learning about habitats will allow little people (and their adults) to feel closer than ever to the world surrounding them!
