S.T.E.A.M. Family Explorers
An Outdoor Experience
CuriOdyssey has taken its popular Pre-K Science Explorers program and re-invented it for a child and their caregiver. With an emphasis on exploring nature and the outdoors, classes will take place at Coyote Point Park, local parks and open spaces. Adult/Child pairs will collaborate with a CuriOdyssey educator and learn together about animals in our backyard, creating natural art, and discovering the science taking place in our outdoor play. Each session will be a series of four, 3-hour long classes with ample time for exploration and include a picnic snack time. This is a great opportunity for you and your child to develop the superpower of science together.
Winter/Spring STEAM Family Explorers Sessions
January 8 – January 29, 2021
This class takes place outside rain or shine, creating the perfect opportunity to explore the weather! In this child and caregiver science session, we will experiment with and observe wind, rain, sunshine, plants, clouds, and more. If your child enjoys stomping in puddles, running in the wind, tasting fresh sourgrass, and watching the clouds, this is the perfect class for you!
February 12 – March 5, 2021
Not all animals at Coyote Point Park live at CuriOdyssey! In this fun new child and caregiver class, explorers will look for clues to learn about what kinds of animals live in the park. We might smell a stinky skunk, catch a mischievous raccoon on our trail camera, find bird footprints at our local marsh, or see who hides under logs to stay safe. Detectives will delight in discovering for themselves what animals might have visited our outdoor classroom overnight!
March 19 – April 16, 2021 (No class April 9)
Test, notice, change! Nature is full of creative building materials and we’ll take full advantage to tinker, build, experiment, and explore! Explorers will ask, “I wonder what happens if I...” and will find out for themselves by building stick forts, creating flying contraptions, digging for clay, and more. This child and caregiver class is perfect for the budding scientist that enjoys tinkering, building, and exploring outdoors!
April 30 – May 21, 2021
There is no better way to learn about nature than by getting outside and playing! In this child and caregiver outdoor science experience, we will visit many of CuriOdyssey’s best kept secret spots and may dig at the sandy beach, flip rocks to look for crabs at the rocky beach, crawl over boulders to get to the shell beach, or get muddy at the marsh! If your child is an outdoor adventurer, this is the perfect class for you!
