Mini-Me Science is a monthly program at Frost Science designed for you and your little one (children ages four and younger) to share experiences that engage the senses while promoting exploration and discovery through hands-on activities that are specifically designed for early learners.
At Frost Science, we think that it is never too early to spark a curiosity for science and recognize that young, developing minds benefit from opportunities to play and explore in safe, educational environments.
All sessions are facilitated by science educators and include all materials and supplies related to the activity, unless otherwise specified.
Mini-Me Science sessions last approximately 30 minutes. All children must be accompanied by an adult (maximum of two adults per child).
Cost: $12 for non-members/ $10 for members
Cost is per child (including infants). Children ages four and younger only. Museum admission must be purchased separately to participate. Must be logged-in to membership account to receive discount. Older siblings may participate for an additional registration fee per sibling.
Mini-Me programs begin promptly at 10:30 a.m. We recommend guests arrive 15 minutes prior to program start time (museum opens at 9:30 a.m.). All sales are final. No refunds, returns or exchanges.
Upcoming Mini-Me Science Sessions
April 20, 2019 (Online registration is closed.)
Get your budding scientist excited about nature and the world around them with a hands on exploration of plants. Little ones will celebrate Earth Day by digging into what plants need to grow healthy and strong before exploring the different parts of a plant with a plant dissection. You and your little one will then work together to create a safe home for your own little seedling to take home to watch grow and flourish, just like your little one.
May 19, 2019 (Register now – Online registration closes Thursday, May 16 at 5:00 p.m.)
Whirling, twirling, spinning spiral patterns will be explored as we examine the science behind the shape of a hurricane! Learn why hurricanes spin, what direction they spin (did you know it depends where you are in the world?!) and why they have an “eye” at the center before creating your own mini vortex in a bottle to take home. Little ones will get to work on their fine motor skills and fuel their curiosity for understanding the natural world around them by exploring spirals on paper, in water, and in bottles.
