Junior Science: Fall Science and Art
Tuesdays, October 4, 11, 18, & 25, 1:15-2pm
Junior Science is back! We are excited to invite junior scientists (ages 3.5 - 5) to our first session, Fall Science and Art, which will combine science, art, and the changing seasons. Junior Science classes open with a story, followed by a fun experiment, and a related art project to take home.
Classes will be held in the CMNH classroom, and families with siblings may opt to play on the second floor during the class time. Please note that the museum is closed to the public on Tuesday afternoons.
Pre-registration is required
Wednesday, October 19, 2-3pm
Perfect class for homeschoolers or anyone looking to dive deeper into our exhibits!
Kids ages 5+, along with their grown-up, are invited to be an exhibit explorer here at the Children's Museum of New Hampshire! Each month we offer a workshop that will highlight a different exhibit with a 40-minute guided lesson followed by in-depth exhibit exploration with a museum educator. After the guided activities, participants can stay and play for the last hour of the play session. This self-guided play time will be great for participating families to get to know one another, or to enjoy exploring the museum on their own.
October's theme is River Builders, and participants will explore the Cochecho Nature exhibit. Hypothesize and learn about creatures that build and make their homes along rivers in New Hampshire, try a building challenge and explore some nature artifacts!
Members $10 for adult/child pair
Non-Members $15 for adult/child pair
Additional children are $8/ Members and $13 for Non-members
Pre-registration is required
Please note that this is not a drop-off program. Parents are expected to stay within the museum for the duration of this program.
