Are you looking for something fun and educational to do with your kids?
Well, the Discovery Space in
They've launched a series of classes called "Science Adventures" and they're free to try out through the end of October.
And Central PA Live went to the very first class.
When it comes to what's on your face, there's no greater expert than Elie, but don't take my word for it.
"Mouth, nose, eyes, eyebrows, and ears, and nose," she said.
Four-and-a-half-year-old Eliana Kaufman is among the dozen or so toddlers attending "Science Adventures" a new series of classes being offered at Discovery Space.
This month's topic is...
"About the human body," said Eliana.
"Each week is a different theme, so this week was sort of an overview, we talked about your whole body, and then a little bit about your face and then next week, we'll talk more about your skeletal system and your muscles, so bones and muscles, and then we'll talk about your circulatory system, things like that, and then we're going to get to senses at the end," said Michele Crowl, the Program Director for the Discovery Space.
Each class starts with story time, and turns into hands-on learning by having children look in mirrors, draw their faces, and then learning what makes them unique.
"I think it looks pretty close to you," said Sarah.
"It does," said Eliana.
"You did a great job," said Sarah.
"I colored my lips red," said Eliana.
And the best part? Classes are free until the grand opening celebration at the end of October.
"So many times we think about learning just happening in schools when really, it's happening everywhere in their lives, every place they go, and the museum is just one more place they can do it," said Crowl.
And when learning isn't just fun, but...
"Super fun!" said Eliana.
....there's no better place to do it.
"I folded it like this, because it's going to be a card for my dad's birthday," said Eliana.
"You're going to make it a birthday card? You are smart," said Sarah.
"And I can give it to him before dinner," said Eliana.
If you want to take your kids to one of the classes, they run on Thursday mornings at 11 am, which is conveniently when the library is closed.
Once the free sessions are over, it'll cost non-members $45 for a seven-course package.
