Learning is fun — even more so when the Hands-On Museum is in charge! For Learning Night, sponsored by UnitedHealthcare Community Plan, the museum came to our site and arranged a wealth of scientific activities designed to make science more approachable.
Ten volunteers from The Children’s Center ran ten different stations that explored a wide variety of scientific topics. Kids looked through magnifying glasses and experimented with colored water. They examined plant and animal bones and fired balloon rockets. They played with magnets, reached inside mystery boxes and created rainbows.
The activities played on our kids senses, taught them how to measure, and honed their motor skills. All while tickling their funnybone!
