Rockland — Children are scientists; they wonder, ask questions and do experiments — ie. “How many tissues are in a tissue box? Let’s pull them all out and see!”

To tap into this innate sense of curiosity Megan Rogers, Outreach and Program Coordinator for the Coastal Children’s Museum, has been holding science mornings for preschoolers in the museum’s recently redone Science Center.

The next Science Morning will take place Wednesday, Dec. 18, from 11 a.m. to noon.

Rogers will be leading 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 up please email info@coastalchildrensmuseum.org or call 596-0300.
