On Science Program is a great opportunity for students to learn through
“doing.” Many activities have something that the children can take home
with them to show mom or dad what they did or to spark further observations/
Children pick 7 science activities
from the form that has at least 18 choices. The Discovery Center will group children by age and assign your
child 3 of his/her 7 choices for the Saturday or Sunday program or 2 of
his/her 7 choices if doing the week night program. Children who are chosen
to do Rocketry will use the
entire morning for those activities so they will do Rocketry and one
other workshop. The Saturday or Sunday program has a magic show during
lunch. Lunch can be pre-purchased for $3 and will include an all beef
hotdog, drink and snack. Or you can purchase lunch items a la carte.
Please send your child with $3-5 to purchases items the day of the event or if you prefer
send a bag lunch. Click

- Should I pick 7 if my child

want to “guarantee” that as an activity we suggest that you take them at
the Discovery Center in Carmel, go to the Workshops section of this
website for the next time these classes are offered.
- Will my Kindergartener feel
comfortable, he/she is so young?
There should be several other kindergarteners attending so your child
will be with other 5 and 6 year olds. However if you still are anxious
go to a different school and be the volunteer there, this way you are in
