Science Explorers

3-4 year olds

Does your preschooler love to explore, ask all types of questions, and get excited when discovering something new? Then Science Explorers classes are for you. Each session features a different science theme and includes activities that spark excitement and ignite curiosity. Our professional museum educators provide distinctive investigations of science and the outdoors.  Preschoolers will utilize their natural skills of curiosity, observation and discovery. We keep our program group size small to provide an up-close & personal experience. Your child is sure to get excited as we play with slime, encounter animals, and explore our surroundings using all five senses!

3-4 year old participants must be potty-trained and able to use the bathroom independently. Drop off will be at CuriOdyssey by between 8:30-9:00am. Pick-up will be at noon. Sessions run one day a week (Fridays) for 5 weeks.

Amazing Animals

October 4 – November 1, 2013
Fur for warmth, feathers for flight, and big eyes for nocturnal life are just some of the adaptations animals have developed to survive in the wild.  This session we investigate the form and function of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and bugs.  Participants will see live animals, search for tracks, and visit the tidepools at Coyote Point Park. Special activities will designed that have participants providing care and enrichment for some of CuriOdyssey’s amazing animals.

Fun with Forces

November 8 – December 13, 2013 (No Class 11/29)
Sending a marble down a slide, swinging a pendulum, and building a box forts are just a few of the activities done by science explorers in this session.  Kids are interacting with gravity, forces, and energy everyday when they roll a log, bounce a ball, and run down a ramp.  If your child enjoys building things then you won’t want to miss this chance to have fun with forces.

Changing Earth

January 10 – February 7, 2014
Air, water, and light are all natural phenomena that constantly alter the place in which we live.  Harnessing the energy of the wind, observing water as it moves from high to low, and investigating the weather at Coyote Point Park are all activities that will help students discover the phenomena that make, shape, and change our earth.

Kitchen Chemistry

February 14 – March 14, 2014
Science and food are an awesome recipe for fun and learning.  Make ice cream in a bag, polish a penny in taco sauce, and dabble with density of different cooking ingredients. Get out your measuring cups, bowls, and utensils as we get our hands into the chemistry of solutions that are slippery, sticky, and slimy.

Outdoor Adventures

March 21 – April 25, 2014 (No Class 4/18)
It’s time to get outside and look at what the spring season has in store for us. Stroll to the beach, muck in the marsh, and frolic through the field here at Coyote Point Recreation Area with ample time to climb trees, fly kites and find nature’s treasures as the seasons change.  Come with us to stretch our legs and embark on our outdoor adventures.
