The Preschool Science Series at the Saint Louis Science Center is the perfect program for young, budding scientists! Preschool-age children and an adult caretaker will explore, investigate, hear stories, and do hands-on science together.
Each session features a different topic, so you'll want to attend often!
Sessions are held from 10 to 11 a.m. Space is limited and reservations are required. One adult per four children is required.
Cost is $30 per child (age 3 and up) for one month of sessions (three sessions per month). $25 per child for members.
Monthly themes are:
April: Paleo Preschool. Kids can come and dig deep and learn about dinosaurs! Each week they will explore different dinosaur activities sure to excite the young paleontologist. They'll learn about teeth, claws, dino poop and more!
