Last Tuesday Drop-In Programs

Want to get outside on a science expedition, and learn about a topic in-depth with hands-on exploration? We are continuing our drop-in program on the last Tuesday of each month from 10am-11am- please arrive a few minutes early so that the program can begin on time. Programs will be held from November to March. These programs are geared for ages 5 and up. Perfect for homeschooling families but open to anyone! Each program will dive into a different topic, and the curriculum is designed to enrich and expand on STEM standards. We have a lot of animals, science, and outdoor adventuring to do! Dress for the weather and expect to spend some time outdoors! Masks will be required indoors.

$5 for the family if you're a member of Tanglewood; if you're not yet a member, $10 for the family.  No registration necessary; pay at the door.
