|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Wednesday, repeating until December 16, 2020

Learn all about the six simple machines, including levers, wedges and pulleys, and how they help us in our daily lives. We will explore, sort, and test various simple machines, and build our own using everyday supplies.

About Little Scientists:

Children explore scientific concepts through inquiry, hands-on activities, and literature. Offered in sessions so our budding scientists can substantially explore a topic. Six weeks of 1-hour classes for 3-5 year olds ready to attend alone.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to current COVID-related regulations, we ask that caregivers remain in the building while their child attends class and that all children in this program be able to listen to and follow simple directions, sit attentively for short periods of time and wear a mask for the entire program.
