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 morning at 9:30am through spring 2018 in KidsPlace on the Arcade Level of Harsco Science Center at Whitaker Center. Little Learners is for children ages 5 & under and their accompanying adult(s). Adults are required to supervise their children at all times during this program. Please make sure you arrive by 9:30am to enjoy our full complement of activities. Because space for this program is limited, we encourage advance purchase of tickets. Every Little Learners session is a different experience!

Let’s Explore the Four Seasons

As we transition from winter to spring, we'll explore the changing seasons and what makes each season so unique. Each Little Learners session in March will focus on a different topic related to the seasons. We'll be doing activities and making things that help us learn more about each season.

March 7 - Winter to Spring

March 14 - Spring to Summer

March 21 - Summer to Fall
