Preschool Science Series


The love of science starts early.

Engage your young scientist in science-related learning with the Preschool Science Series. Through interactive stories and hands-on exploration, children will engage with science, language, problem-solving and social skills. Classes are offered year-round, with different topics offered each week. Each class date can be purchased individually.

The Science Center has temporarily suspended Preschool Science Series offerings to maintain the recommended safety guidelines during Covid-19. In the meantime, check out our Discover Science with Me Program.
