Tuesday, Oct. 16 is Young Learner Day at Liberty Science Center! Kids in grades Pre-K through 3 are invited to join us for special programming that includes learning to use microscopes, exploring the animals of the rainforest, and understanding the inner workings of the human body.
Here's what you can look forward to on your visit:
Inside even a young human body are trillions of itty bitty cells, and inside those cells are smaller parts still! Guests will get to hold a larger than life plush animal cell and explore its inner workings with colorful and textured organelles.
How many ridges does a scallop shell have? Does a sea star look bumpy or smooth? Young learners will practice using microscopes and hand lenses to look more closely at different artifacts from animals of the Hudson estuary.
In this program, young learners will become animal rescuers! Discover the different layers of the rainforest to help animals find their way home in the forest. Rescuers will even get a visit from some of LSC's live rainforest animals in this hands-on adventure.
Liberty Science Center will be open from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. Can't wait to see you!
