Ages 3 - 5 and an Adult. Do you love to try new things out and see what happens? This new class invites you to bring your curiosity, some easily gathered items from your home and YOU. Each week we'll apply inquiry-based principles to open-ended math, science and social/emotional questions. Share ideas, make predictions, change variables and come to conclusions as a group. For example, what happens if I mix cornstarch and water together? Or, what will paint look like on ice? How does a homemade scale work to weight objects? The list of "I Wonder" questions are endless, so let's figure out together how and why the world works the way it does one week at a time. Join us in this open-ended, interactive and unique class. Instructor: Susanna Brown. 7 classes. Scholarship recipients pay $10.
