Under the Sea (ages 6-12)
Are you and your family curious about what’s under the sea? Come investigate whales, fish, octopus, seashells and more. Perform several different experiments with your family to discover the wonders of what’s Under the Sea.    

Slithery Slime: Creating Polymers to Better Understand Animals! (ages 6-12)
Through the art and fun of making your own batch of slime, learn more about a group of animals known as herps! Herps, or reptiles and amphibians, have a lot in common with the polymer of slime. During this class, we'll have some fun with slime while discovering more about toads, snakes, and turtles, what an ectotherm is, how temperature impacts both ectotherms and slime, and how to protect these incredible species!

The 5 R's: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Refuse, Rot - A focus on Sustainability, the importance of Managing Waste, and Understanding How Recycling Works
We've heard of the 3 R's, but now, let's add two more equally as important R's to the list! During this class, we'll discuss the importance of sustainability and some ins-and-outs of the recycling process in order to make a more significant impact on our ecosystems. Participants will get to learn more about composting, up-cycling, and other creative ways to reduce landfill waste at home. During this class, participants will also be able to take a step on their sustainable-lifestyle journey by creating our own Reusable Bag Holder, perfect for reducing their single-use bag consumption.

The Great Pumpkin (ages 6-12)
Come and experience the “Great Pumpkin”. Learn about the fruit and the parts of the plants through a pumpkin dissection. Guess the weight of the locally grown pumpkins. Discover how pumpkins can roll and participate in a race. Build a catapult using a pumpkin to launch candy corn.
