Small scientists invited to Coastal Children's Museum
Rockland — Ever seen a child pile rocks or sort cars into a line? Little do they know, they are collecting information about an object’s physical attributes and comparing and ordering — they are flexing their scientific muscles.
To tap into this innate sense of curiosity, Megan Rogers, outreach and programcoordinator for Coastal Children’s Museum, will be holding a science morning Wednesday Nov. 13, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the museum’s new science center. Rogers will be leading the children in activities from the Carnegie Science Center's pre-school science curriculum designed to teach young children about science through play, one of the core values of the museum.
Children and their parents will explore differences and similarities looking at how different objects roll and move, absorb water, and float. 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 included in the price of admission and advanced sign up is not required but would aid in the preparation of materials. To sign up, please email email@example.com or call 596-0300.
