La Jolla Girl loves the Fleet as I mentioned in my last Reuben H. Fleet post. She loves all of the hands on exhibits and Kid City. This photo is of a tube where you pull balls in it and they fly up and out. We spent a lot of time playing with it (no, that’s not us in the photo). 🙂
The Reuben H Fleet has a new hands-on program called “Young Scientists” starting at the Fleet on September 16th. It’s a special 4-week series taught by the Fleet’s Early Childhood Educators for preschool age children and their parent or guardian.
Along with their parent or guardian, children ages 3 – 5 will explore the scientific wonders of the world. Each 4-week series is held on Wednesday mornings from 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. and includes access to the Fleet’s one-hundred plus hands-on exhibits before they open to the public. From outer space to kitchen chemistry, preschoolers will learn about science through questioning, investigations and experimentation. Session 1 starts September 16th. Registration is $80.00 per session for non-members and $70.00 per session for members.
