3-4 year olds
Preschoolers are natural scientists, utilizing their natural skills of inquiry, observation and discovery to explore and understand the world. Each session features a different scientific theme and includes activities that spark excitement and ignite curiosity. Our professional educators provide distinctive investigations of science and the outdoors. We keep our program group size small to provide an up-close and 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 between 8:30 and 9:00am. Pick-up will be at noon. Sessions run one day a week (Fridays) for 5 weeks.
October 3 – November 7, 2014 (No class 10/24)
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 will investigate the form and function of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and bugs. Participants will see live animals, search for tracks and visit the tide pools at Coyote Point Park. Special activities will have students providing care and enrichment for some of CuriOdyssey’s amazing animals.
Build it Up
November 14 – December 19, 2014 (No Class 11/28)
Sending a marble down a slide, creating a straw structure, and building a box fort are just a few of the activities Science Explorers will do in this session. Participants will use the same process as engineers in designing, building and testing the strength of structures. If your child enjoys building things then you won’t want to miss this chance to have them build it up.
Air, Water and Light
January 9 – February 6, 2015
Air, water and light are natural phenomena that influence the place where we live. Participants will be cooking with a solar oven, harnessing the energy of wind and getting their hands wet exploring the properties of water. This session explores these earthly elements in different combinations. Be prepared to be amazed with what we find as we work with the things that have made and shaped our planet.
February 13 – March 13, 2015
Science and food are an awesome recipe for fun and learning. Make ice cream, polish a penny in taco sauce and dabble with the density of different cooking ingredients. Participants will be using our measuring cups, bowls and utensils as we get our hands into the chemistry of solutions that are slippery, sticky and slimy.
March 20 – April 24, 2015 (No Class 4/3)
Spring in the Bay Area is a mixture of sunshine, rain and wind. This session of Science Explorers takes advantage of its location to study weather patterns. Which way does the wind blow? How much rain has fallen? What animals do we see during the spring? Participants will investigate and answer these questions. Be sure to join us during this exploration of weather wonders.
