Outreach

Let us bring the museum to you! Outreach programs are generally longer and more in-depth than our science field trip classes. All classes include a “make and take” craft that extends the learning experience. Our costs, terms, and most popular topics are described below; other options are available to suit your needs, including family drop-in programs.

Please contact Renee Guerrero, Education Director, for more information or to schedule an outreach program at your location.

Program Topics

One Inch at a Time – NEW!

This program starts with story time to introduce vocabulary, then children explore centers in small groups. Practice measurement using “inchworms” as well as standardized tools like rulers and measuring tape. Explore relationships and comparisons between objects of different sizes. WOW! is grateful for support from LEAP into Science, a science and literacy program developed by The Franklin Institute and the Free Library of Philadelphia with support from the National Science Foundation.

Romping Stomping Dinosaurs
Life Science, Mathematics, age 3 years old to 1st Grade 

Little learners practice counting and comparing. Hold a baby Stegosaurus. Compare your foot to big and small dinosaur tracks. Look inside a dinosaur’s lunchbox. Make a dinosaur fossil craft!

Magical Magnets
