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 9:30 am through December 2018 in KidsPlace. 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.

TIME: 9:30 - 11:00 am
Please make sure you arrive by 9:45 am to enjoy our full complement of activities which begin shortly before 10:00 am

DAY(S): Wednesday
Note - Beginning September 2018, Little Learners will be offered two days a week! Both Wednesday and Saturday include the same content so please register for only one day per week.

Months & Descriptions

August 2018: Healthy Living
Join us on Wednesdays this summer to discover a new part of a healthy lifestyle. Themes may include healthy snacking, exercise, My Plate, sports, outdoor activities and more! Each week will be new and exciting while keeping the kids connected all summer long.

September - December 2018: STEM Careers
This fall the little learners will explore different STEM careers and the application of STEM theories. Topics may include biology, chemistry, environmentalism, architecture, computer science and more! Each week is its own independent topic; but attending for consecutive weeks will allow the children to build on STEM topics and create a cohesive understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
