Remote Little Engineers
Little Engineers is a hands-on STEM enrichment program that introduces children to science and engineering through creativity and fun. Our child-centered classes build school-ready skills by encouraging observation, communication, and problem solving.
Each session lasts four weeks and is designed for children ages 3-5 with accompanying adult.
Although we would love to welcome you back into the Museum's learning center, in the interest of public health and safety, our first few Little Engineers sessions of 2021 will be fully virtual.
When: Wednesday mornings 9-9:30 AM
What: Class will start with an introduction to the day’s theme through virtual engagement, such as reading a book or exploring the Museum, followed by a guided activity prompt for a student-led project. Optional “office hours” available for 15 minutes after class for further questions or social time with the instructors.
All materials are included in your program price and can be picked up from the Museum a few days before your first class, or shipped directly to you for an additional fee.
