October 30, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am EDT

You canโ€™t claim to be a Little Edison if you donโ€™t make things! First, students read about Rosie Revere, who learned from her famous aunt, Rosie the Riveter, that itโ€™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.

miSciโ€™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.
