Young Scientists

Preschool Science Program


Thank you for a wonderful year!

We had a great time and we hope to see you in the September. Young Scientists is a hands-on preschool science program offered by the Fleet Science Center. This program provides informal learning experiences that support and enhance exploration, create excitement and facilitate scientific discoveries.

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.

Enrollment is limited and pre-registration is required. Participants must register for all four classes in each session. 

Young Scientist registration for Fall will begin August 2018


Looking for Summer opportunities for your Young Scientist?

The Fleet Science Center has science themed summer camps that provide exciting experiments, intriguing investigations and fantastic fun. We have something for all ages, from Pre-K through 8th Grade.

Has your Young Scientist graduated from the program and looking for more science fun?

Students in grades 1 – 4 can join our Junior Science Club. Join us on the third Saturday of each month to investigate exciting science topics. Sessions will be filled with new challenges, hands-on activities and interaction with local scientists.
