Each session consists of four weeks of developmentally appropriate science-related topics.  Young scientists classes include exploring the science center galleries as well as hands-on science activities led by the Fleet’s science educators. Each activity includes parent/child directed questions.

The program is designed for children ages 3-5 years with an accompanying adult. One caregiver must attend with each child. Siblings are not permitted.
