What will my child do throughout the day?
Science in the Park starts off the day with a safe and secure sign-in process with parent signatures required. After signing your child in, we will give you a pickup pass with your child’s name, which will be used to sign them out at the end of the day. Up next, we start the day off with a big welcoming ceremony, where we introduce our Teachers and Explorers to one another through a fun game. We then break away into our groups, divided by grade level, where we begin our first Science Activity. After creating their first project in Science Activity 1, our groups come together for a quick Snack and Teacher led game! Half way through the day, explorers begin their second hands-on Science Activity. After an exciting morning of exploration, our scientists need to re-energize with a healthy lunch and more group games! Almost the end of the day, our explorers now return to their groups where they will review the day’s activities and receive a graduation gift to remind them of their experience at Science in the Park. At the end of the day, our explorers must be signed out by a parent or guardian, along with the provided Pickup Pass. Our explorers always take home everything they design and build at camp so they can share the science fun with the whole family!
