My Parent and Me

Next session starts in September

Wednesday and Saturday classes!

9:30 AM to 10:30 AM on both days

A five-week session for preschoolers that provides a chance for kids and parents to interact, explore, imagine and discover the world of science.

All programs include arts and crafts, and a preschool educational program as well as take-home activities and a reading list to continue the learning experience outside of the museum.

September 17 & 20 F is for Fall:
The seasons are changing and there's a lot going on outdoors. Join us as we investigate the fall season! In this hands-on science class we will learn about what causes the seasons and how animals modify their habits to adjust to the changing seasons.


October 8 & 11 Bones:
Join us and learn all about bones! We'll investigate animal bones, learn how they work and create a skeleton of our own. We will also read a bone story and do lots of movement activities.

September 24 & 27 Leaf Science:
Have you ever examined fall leaves up-close? Come to this class and learn about the colorful leaves of the season. We'll learn about why leaves change color, create leaf rubbings and a leaf craft to take home.


October 15 & 18 Pumpkin Science:
Pumpkins are everywhere this time of year! Join us to learn how pumpkins grow, investigate them inside and out, construct a pumpkin seed craft and more in this hands-on pumpkin exploration!

October 1 & 4 Insectology:
Bugs are everywhere! What do you know about them? We'll explore these creepy, crawly members of the animal kingdom by reading a story, meeting live insects, and creating a cool bug craft to take home.
