Curiologists: Environmental Science
Thursdays February 22 through March 29
1:30 - 2:30 PM

Presented by the Dobbs Ferry Recreation Department, Curiologists is a program based on the idea that pre-schoolers like to pretend and explore and learn! In this 6-week session, they play the role of scientists and explore themes that encompass a physical connection to the world around them. Each lesson is designed to provide a sensory experience to enhance a child’s natural curiosity. We explore “forces of nature,” (gravity, momentum, etc.) and “actions and reactions” (what happens when two things mix or collide?). Each class starts with a brief discussion about the week’s theme. Then we conduct experiments, asking for predictions and observations. The outcomes always include learning and having fun!!
Fee: $140.00 Residents $155.00 Non-residents
