The science investigations and natural history explorations are specially designed to introduce young learners to the tools and processes of science in an age appropriate manner.
Both Wednesday morning (9:30–11:30 a.m.) and afternoon (1–3 p.m.) sessions are offered during the Fall, Winter, and Spring terms.

 
A typical Young Scientist program includes the following activities:

• Free Play

The Young Scientist program is taught by Amy VanderKooi and Rebecca Haynes, and assistant teachers who help with activities to ensure every child is receiving individual attention.
