Little Edisons – Talking About Trains
November 10 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm EST
Let’s get ready for miSci’s train exhibit! Students read Terrific Trains by Tony Mitton, then make an engineer’s hat while talking about what kind of cars power the train, carry the people, and carry cargo. Little engineers will build a funicular train that we can power ourselves.
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 Edisonstakes 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.
