STEM Sensory Days

STEM Sensory Days

Explore. Create. Grow.

We are proud to present STEM Sensory Days at Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts. On three select Sundays during three months,  families affected by autism spectrum disorder are invited to explore Harsco Science Center (including special exhibits) during a special morning visit from 8:30am-11:30am, beforethe center opens to the public. Experience our exhibits without heavy crowds when we have softened general lighting and decreased the noise level and visual stimulation on interactive exhibits wherever possible.

To preserve the integrity of this event, we ask that only families with children who are affected by autism spectrum disorder attend.

Cost:

$10.00 per person for ages 3 and up
Children under 3 are FREE

Enjoy all Harsco Science Center has to offer with special consideration to accommodate you and your family. Our new (temporary) exhibits Castle Builder: a LEGO® Building Exhibit and Whitaker Wonderland will be open. Our good friend Santa will be making an appearance and has set up Quiet Santa time. This low-stimulus event offers an opportunity to meet the big guy in red with low lights and sound and without the crowds and lines that normally accompany a visit to Santa. Book your Santa time when your family arrives to play and we call you when the jolly man is ready!
