Curious little explorers (ages 4-6 years) conduct simple, safe, science and nature experiments in the EcoTarium's Budding Scientists program.

Held on the first Thursday of every month, you and your child will learn basic scientific principles while having fun with hands-on activities.

The EcoTarium has been a space of learning and discovery for young children for many years. Our Preschool Wednesdays offer toddlers and their families to go on a journey through story time, a live animal experience, and a maker space for crafts. Budding Scientists is an immersive experience for kids ages 4-6 to learn basic scientific principles through hands-on activities and experiments.

These educational programs have been very popular and the education team is committed to improving the quality of depth and experience. This year, there will be several modifications organized to enrich our preschool programs.

As of January 1, 2019:

Our Budding Scientists program will expand from 30-minute sessions to 45-minute sessions, and continue to be offered monthly on Thursday and Saturday.

Preschool Wednesdays and Budding Scientists will be offered at an additional cost to museum admission:

Children under the age of 2 are free
$3 per child 2 years old+ (member rate)
$5 per child 2 years old+ (non-member rate)

Tickets can be purchased at the Tickets & Information Desk upon entry

Now with three identical sessions held monthly on both Thursday and Saturday, you and your child will learn basic scientific principles while having fun with hands-on activities.

Budding Scientists is designed for families and their children aged 4-6. You bring the curiosity, we'll provide the smocks: This is active and interactive science, so children may get messy.

Schedule:

January 10 and 12: Young Engineering: Tinkering

Join us as we find creative uses for everyday materials and ask important questions like 'what can I do with this?' and “how does this work?” We’ll tinker with tools, experiment with everything, and make sure to make a mess!

February 14 and 16: Our Senses: Touch

Let’s learn about our sense of touch! Explore and experiment with a variety of materials to discover how your sense of touch helps you stay safe while experiencing your surroundings.

March 14 and 16: Be a Scientist: Take a Closer Look

Learn how to use scientific tools to explore the world of the very small and unseen. What wonders will we discover inside a drop of water?
