Science Friday – Touch Tank Table visiting from the Maritime Aquarium!

August 11, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This week is the VERY LAST Science Friday of the Summer! We’re having special guests come with a very special table – A Touch Tank Center from the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.  It’s a supervised touch tank experience, with educators from the Aquarium.  Includes tidepool creatures such as crabs, snails, whelks and clams.  It will make for a very special Science Friday!

Our Teen Science Buddies will also be on hand with 5 other science experiences, including a magnet scavenger hunt, paper airplane engineering challenge, and more.

This is the  fifth summer of our explosively popular “drop-in” program for families of kids ages 3 – 11. Our teen Science Buddy volunteers bring science exploration to life.

New themes and projects each week, including: discovery kits, tinkering projects, science experiments, on-site demonstrations, and more. You may get messy, and parents should definitely expect to participate!
