The Science and Nature Program enhances children's understanding and respect for the natural world, as well as teaches the initial skills of scientific inquiry. This innovative program, offering weekday classes during the school year, is designed to educate children ages 3 through 11 and their parents about the wonders of the Museum. Based on the premise that young children attain deeper levels of understanding when significant adults in their lives are involved, the Program requires that each child be accompanied in class by a parent or grandparent.
