Bringing Kindergarten Science to Life will bring science educators from The Children's Museum to Webster Hill Elementary School to facilitate immersive, hands-on learning experiences that align to all three of the kindergarten science units over the course of the school year. Students will have the opportunity to engage in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) experiments while broadening their understanding of these concepts. Our kindergarten students will participate in three exciting science programs: Weather Wonders, We Like to Move It, and Meet the Animals. Each of these programs are aimed at providing stimulating, hands-on learning experiences designed especially to meet the needs of young children. This is the kind of learning students remember for a long time and will have a deep and meaningful impact on their education and nurtures a love for science and STEAM learning.
