Little Edisons – Little Makers
October 27 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm EDT
You can’t claim to be a Little Edison if you don’t make things! First, students read about Rosie Revere, who learned from her famous aunt, Rosie the Riveter, that it’s okay to fail if you keep on trying. Participants make a hoop plane and see if they can get it airborne. Then give a bear a ride on a boat built out of various materials. Take the plane and boat home and see if you can improve their design.
miSci’s Little Edisons program, for kids ages 3 to 5, is fun way to nurture the curiosity of pint-sized future engineers, chemists, and inventors. Sessions are 45 minutes long and feature hands-on activities designed to teach problem solving and to encourage the joy of discovery. Little Edisons takes place Wednesdays, from 12 to 12:45 p.m., and Saturdays, from 10 to 10:45 a.m. The fee is $12 per child for non-members and $10 for Members. Adults accompanying a child are not required to purchase an additional ticket. Hands-on materials are included.
