Little Learners in Harsco Science Center is the perfect program for parents, guardians, and caretakers of preschoolers to spend time together and foster an early love of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) while enjoying hands-on activities.
This program is offered every Wednesday and Saturday morning at 9:30. Each session includes a variety of hands-on projects and science experiments, as well as books, songs and puzzles. 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.
Spring has sprung! Let’s learn about how plants and animals start to change now that the weather is warmer. We will investigate how seeds grow and what types of animals hatch out of eggs. We’ll get messy with mud painting and create seed bombs to take home as we observe, measure, predict, infer, communicate, and experiment.
Can you help the three little pigs build a house to stand up to the big bad wolf or little red riding hood get to grandma's house? Join us as we revist some favorite tales and use the Engineer Design Cycle to find solution to fair tale sized problems.
TIME: 9:30 - 11:00 am
Please make sure you arrive at 9:30 am to enjoy our full complement of activities which begin around 10:00 am.
