Preschool science mornings continue in Rockland
Rockland — Tapping into a child’s innate sense of curiosity Megan Rogers, outreach and program coordinator for Coastal Children’s Museum, has been holding science mornings for preschoolers in the museum’s recently redone Science Center.
In the previous workshop held Jan. 8, the group observed a sea star and three types of crabs that call the museum’s Gulf of Maine Touch Tank home as well as looking a little closer at feathers and insects with the museum’s scope on a rope.
The next Science Morning will take place Wednesday, Jan. 22, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and will focus on color and light, the senses and a demo of some science tricks fun for the whole family.
Rogers will be leading the children in activities from the Carnegie Science Center's preschool science curriculum designed to teach young children about science through play, one of the core values of the museum. All the activities have been designed for young children and will allow them to explore scientific concepts through use of scientific tools and creating their own experiments to answer questions they come up with themselves.
This workshop is geared toward preschoolers 3-5 years old and is included in the price of admission. Advanced sign up is not required but would aid in the preparation of materials. To sign your young scientists up please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 596-0300.
