DescriptionNature and Science at Wonder Works

Friday, October 11: Collecting Nature, 10am to Noon
Young children and their adults can learn about the natural world when they collect rocks, fossils, shells, bones, seeds, cones, or other objects produced by nature. At our Collecting Nature program, you can view, touch, sort, classify, learn about and play with our nature collections from around the world. You can also jump start your own nature collection: Sift through the sandbox to find rocks and shells you can either keep or trade at the Nature Collector's Swap Shop. At the Swap Shop you can also trade in natural objects you bring form home.

Friday, October 18: Animals with Bones, 10am to Noon
Get ready for Halloween by discovering bones and skeletons! Find out which animals have bones and what their bones look and feel like. Then play with plastic and plush versions of animals with bones and dig skeletons out of play dough. You also can discover skeletal decorations and costumes designed for Halloween, plus decorated sugar skulls made to celebrate Day of the Dead.

Friday, October 25: What's Inside? 10am to Noon
Today we will use our senses of touch, hearing, and sight to discover what's inside a variety of natural and human made objects. Reach inside a box and let you sense of touch tell you what it holds. Shake a container to see if you can tell what's inside just by listening. You can look at X-rays of skeletons and try to put pretend organs back inside a plastic body. Then hatch plastic and play dough eggs to discover insects, dinosaurs, and more. There also will be magic tricks that you can figure out once you look below the surface.
