Learn by Doing!

Explore the world through your senses.  For young children ages 3 and under, this class series is an exploration-based inquiry class.  Burpee Museum of Natural History's NEW class runs in the flexible format of multiple stations while the young child can move from activity to activity exploring based on their own developmental needs and learning style.  Each class focuses on different themes from exploring color to exploring smell!  Come learn the science of your senses and explore with Burpee!

What to Expect

Multiple stations will be set up in the Burpee Museum classroom, and children will have guided exploration through all experiments and activities.  Time will allow children to repeat and re-explore activities as they choose. Each class lasts about 1 hour with guided instruction.

Because admission is included in the class fee, students should feel free to remain and explore the museum after class!
