Early Learners

Early Learning is so important and so fun!  SEE offers special programs geared just to the youngest scientists in our community.

Storytime Science

Toddlers are encouraged to think about the world around them using a story and an activity. We will introduce STEM topics through storytelling, movement, experiments and discovery.

Tuesdays from 10:30am
Approximately one hour program followed by free explore time

Pre-registration is required.  The program is limited to 25 participants (all ages).

Ages 3 to adult ($10 Admission +$3 Program Add-on)

Child under age 3 (Free under 3 admission + $3 Program Add-on)

Member Families (Free member admission + $3 Program Add-on)

Storytime Science is designed to help foster a love of science in children and their caregivers.  We show families that anyone can do science no matter your age or ability. These in-person cross-generational programs encourage families to become active participants in the learning of their youngest members.  Families work collaboratively to develop precursor science skills through stories, movement, and observation.  These classes provide science growth to toddlers and provide steppingstones for continuing science learning in the home.

We have a new registration portal.  You are required to add both an admission ticket and a StoryTime Add-on to your cart before completing your registration.  If you are a SEE member you will need to login to purchase member admission. 

Testimonial:

“Calvin looks forward to Storytime Science every week! He loves
telling Dad and big sister all about what he read and learned and
frequently recreates the activities at home.  His older sister had been
in the door two seconds before Calvin whipped out his spare materials
wanting to “teach you my science!” He also retold the story. I’m
surprised how much he remembered.  It’s amazing and explore time
afterwards is just another bonus! 😄 “

Science Sprouts

Periodic pop-up activities offered as an admission add on. 

Sign up for our email and follow us on social media to know when these special activities are scheduled to pop up.

One hour program for Ages 4-6 and their caregiver(s)

Cost $3 per person

All sprouts activities are designed to spark curiosity. We will guide preschoolers and their caregivers to gain confidence in using the scientific method to find answers.

These short sessions feature hands-on activities that spark creativity and problem solving. We encourage all members in a family to work together. Through these activities, younger children will develop early science skills. Parents and children will practice roles that help foster learning and strengthen their own understandings of science concepts. Through this approach we hope to inspire a passion for lifelong learning beginning with families.
