Toothy topics discussed at 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 program coordinator for the Coastal Children’s Museum, will be holding a science morning Wednesday, Feb. 12, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the museum’s How? Why? science center. Rogers will be leading the children in activities designed to teach young children about science through play, one of the core values of the museum.
Small scientists will be thinking and investigating teeth in celebration of National Children's Dental Health Month. 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.
