Science isn’t what you know - it’s a way of thinking!

Nurture your early learner’s scientific brain in the Littles Lab. Test, observe and examine a new material each week in this hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) program, specially designed for early learners. This weekly, drop-in program is designed to encourage exploration and promote experimentation with everything from paint and bubbles to sand and blocks.
