Science is about trying to make sense of the world. The idea of explaining science to young children can feel overwhelming to many adults. But luckily, explanations about science aren't what young children want at first. They want to play! Curiosity drives children’s interest in science and we can all appreciate curiosity. So where do we start? witf invites you and your 3-7 year old to join us for Ready, Set…Explore, a series of Saturday morning science play dates where you and your child can spend time together and play with science. Each event is shaped around a science concept and a well-loved PBS character who will be at the event to explore along with you. All events are held at the witf Public Media Center in Harrisburg specific Saturdays from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM. The events are free for families thanks to some wonderful community partners.
Get ready to go-go-go-go on a winter adventure with Cat in the Hat and witf! Join us from 9:00 AM – 12:00 noon on November 17 at the witf Public Media Center for engaging winter activities as we learn more about what animals do in when the weather turns cold. There will be lots to make and do. We’ll be joined by our good friends at the Oakes Museum of Natural History at Messiah College who will help us learn more about animals. This FREE event is specifically designed for our witf friends who are 3 to 8 but older and younger siblings are invited to attend as well! The Cat In the Hat will be on hand for photos and mischief.
