The Children's Museum of New Hampshire is now taking registrations for new preschool and homeschool science classes that begin on March 7, 2013. Each 6-week session includes hands-on experiments, lessons and creative projects under the instruction of a museum educator, and classes are separated into pre-school grouping and homeschooled children ages 5½-9.
The Junior Science Explorers Class is for children ages 3-1/2 to 5 years old and will meet on Thursdays, March 7 – April 11 at 10 am. Budding scientists will be introduced to a variety of science topics with themed activities and experiments during each 45-minute class. The cost is $60 for museum members and $70 for non-members, and the price includes all materials.
Science Explorers for Homeschoolers has been created for children ages 5½ – 9 years old and will meet on Thursdays, March 7 – April 11 at 11:30 am. The theme for this first session is “Making Things Move With Physics.” Students will learn what a force is using hands-on explorations with gravity, friction, and air resistance. The class will explore ways to change the effect of a force has on people and objects on earth, design things that move using forces, and experiment with changing how things move. The cost for this 6-week class is $60 for members and $70 for non-members. Additional siblings in a family pay just $36 each to participate.
