As summer has turned into fall, we know that things still look a little different, and we want to provide you with as many programming options as possible. In addition to our in-person programming, we are excited to announce our NEW Science Together: Near & Far events, Virtual After School Programs and Virtual Events!
Science Together: Near & Far
In the current environment, we can’t always be together with our family & friends like we’d like to be. This new program gives family and friends, both near and far, the chance to do fun and educational hands-on science activities together.
Your Science Together event will be private for your group. You select the topic and schedule it at a date and time that works for your group. Events can be held evenings, weekends and some weekdays during the day. Your event will last about 45-60 minutes. Let us know how many participants there will be, and we will mail the materials directly to each participant. Each participant will receive the Zoom link and an information sheet about the event so that they’re ready for the big day. If there are others (ie grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.) that would like to join to watch, they are welcome to do so! This is a time to learn and have fun together as family and friends and to have the chance to connect with one another, whether you’re near or far.
Activities are designed to work for groups of children of mixed ages (4-11 years old) and instruction will be geared to the age of the children participating. The cost is $15 per participant (child who receives materials to participate). For younger siblings (ages 3 and under), materials can be purchased at a reduced rate. We want everyone to be able to join in on the fun and learning!
How do I sign up?
Talk with family/friends to determine how many children would like to participate and which topic you’d like to do. Then designate one person to be the “coordinator”. The coordinator will register and pay for the correct number of participants. Your confirmation email will contain a link to the form where you will fill out the topic you’d like, date & time options, and name, age and addresses of each of the participants. Please try to allow at least two weeks between registration and the date of your event, to ensure materials have time to be shipped and arrive in time. We’ll confirm with you the time and date of your event and then we’ll do the rest! We’ll send all participants the Zoom link and the materials. You are welcome to send the Zoom link to others like grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. who might enjoy being part of the fun.
If you have any questions or would like to confirm a time and date prior to registering, just give us a call! Andrea @ 267-250-0172

With nearly everything being virtual these days, we realize that a series of virtual classes may not be right for everyone. That is why we are excited to announce our NEW Virtual Events. These "Virtual Events" consist of just one class and can be taken live or watch the recorded class when it fits your schedule!
Once you register, you'll receive a Welcome Email will all of the information you'll need. If your program includes materials, they'll be mailed to you. You'll also receive the link to the live Zoom class and the recorded class.
Whether you're participating in the live class or the recorded class, the event will include instruction and hands-on activities that will keep participants engaged, learning, and having fun!
You will need a computer, tablet, or smartphone. It is recommended that you have a stable internet connection with at least 25mbps for streaming video. There are no refunds given on our Virtual Events.
Check below for our schedule! New programs will be attended soon!
