Try a field trip or group visit (consider a Discovery Monday)! We specialize in programming for children, preschool through Grade 6. Our educators are knowledgeable, child-centered and teach from an inquiry based perspective. Programs incorporate hands-on authentic activities that offer discovery, play and wonder to children about the world around them. Whether you are exploring a topic in a preschool class, looking for some added fun to a camp/afterschool activity/party, or trying to satisfy Connecticut Science Standards, we have something for everyone.
Programs are aligned to the Connecticut Science Standards, but can easily be adapted to fit ANY grade level!
