Exploring Weather and Extreme Environments
Dover, NH – (Tuesday, December 19, 2017) Beginning the week of January 8, 2018, kids can learn about Extreme Environments or All About Weather, by signing up for the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire’s popular science classes. These classes may be exploring extreme places and extreme weather, but the museum is a warm and friendly environment to learn new things and discover new facts.
Kids ages 3.5-5 years of age can sign up for one of two available Junior Science: All About Weather classes, offered either Mondays from 1:30-2:15pm or on Thursdays from 10:15-11am. Homeschool kids ages 6-8 can register for Tuesday’s Homeschool Science: Extreme Environments on Tuesdays from 10:15-11:15am. All classes are taught by our staff educators who specialize in making science fun and engaging for kids of various ages. Young scientists will be encouraged to ask questions as they try experiments, make art projects and discover new things about the world around them.
Monday Junior Science Class: All About Weather
Mondays, January 8 – February 12, 1:30-2:15pm
Or Thursdays, January 11 – February 15, 10:15-11am
What’s more fun to talk about than the weather in these cold winter months? This winter, junior scientists, ages 3.5-5, will explore rain, clouds, the sun, wind, snow and more by doing hands-on activities, listening to stories, and engaging in interactive experiments. MEMBER PERK FOR MONDAY CLASS: The museum exhibits are closed on Mondays, but smaller siblings and parents who are museum members will have access to the Primary Place exhibit to play while class is in session (45 minutes). Please note that the first floor exhibits will be closed during this time.
Homeschool Science: Extreme Environments
Tuesdays, January 9 – February 13, 10:15-11:15am
This winter, homeschool students ages 6-8, will explore some of the most extreme environments on earth – without leaving the museum! We will be learning about how animals and people survive in extreme temperatures from Antarctica to the Sahara! Young scientists will get to try experiments, make art projects, and even do some engineering projects in this hands-on science class.
