February's Topic: Dinosaur Dig - What Did They Eat? | Scientists: Leakey Family
Saturday Science is back for another fantastic year! Tailored to two elementary school-age groups (K-2 and 3-5), Saturday Science sessions expose kids to different scientific fields and the leading female and minority scientists in those fields. The theme for this year's series is The Science of Food, and each session includes a hands-on experiment or craft activity. (Age limits are strictly enforced to ensure a positive experience for all children.)
Registration for this program will open on January 15. Please register online or by calling 781-741-1405 ext. 1403.
