These workshops are structured in such a way that families with multiple children of different ages can have a shared, age-appropriate educational experience. We unify the experience each month by celebrating a different scientist. The whole group comes together to learn more about the person's scientific contributions before breaking out into smaller, age-focused groups for hands-on inquiry.
