What’s so special about a magnet? Discover magnetic fields, experiment with north and south poles, and make a piece of magnetic art to stick on the fridge!

February: Explore-a-saurus

Feb. 7 at 11 a.m. and Feb. 17 at 10:30 a.m.

February is all about DINOSAURS! Learn about your favorite dinos, dig for fossils, and even be able to tell a coprolite from a real dinosaur!

March: Young Egg-splorers

March 7 at 11 a.m. and March 17 at 10:30 a.m.

This month, we’ll perform egg-speriments to learn about one of nature’s marvels – the egg.  Compare the nests of different organisms and their eggs, test how strong eggs really are, and use science to make a “rubber” egg.

April: Our Favorite Star

April 4 at 11 a.m. and April 21 at 10:30 a.m.

What’s at the center of our solar system and why do we call Earth a “Goldilocks” planet? Learn the answers to these questions in our space-themed workshop, plus experience what stars are made of and imagine life as an astronaut!

May: Red, Yellow, & Blue

May 2 at 11 a.m. and May 19 at 10 a.m.

Have fun experimenting with primary colors and color mixing. A fun and messy experience, with LOTS of things to take home!
