Virtual Littles Lab

Nurture your early learner’s scientific brain in our Virtual Littles Lab. Test, observe, and examine new materials each week in this hands-on STEAM program, specially designed for children ages 1-6 and their caregivers (though all children are welcome). Register in advance for this weekly Zoom program, led by Program Facilitator, Hannah. Space is limited!

Use materials you have at home or purchase a supply kit for pick-up at the London Children’s Museum. Each supply kit is $15 and contains enough materials for one child, for all four weeks of the program. A list of program materials can be found below.
