Vacation Week Program
February Vacation Week
For Children 3 through 6 years old!
Our unique vacation week program for children ages 3 through 6 at the South Shore Natural Science Center is a partnership between experienced Nature Center Preschool teachers and knowledgeable Science Center Naturalists! Teachers and Naturalists combine their talents to facilitate children’s discovery of the small animals and habitats in their own backyard.
“STEM-Sational Winter Discoveries!”
Through outdoor exploration, art, and a special focus on STEM-based experiences, children will investigate the sensational natural world in winter. STEM: “Science, Technology, Engineering, Math”, will guide our explorations as we discover jumping snow fleas, how to construct miniature snow tunnels, the unique shape of snowflakes, and more! Please dress appropriately to go outside.
