Over the years, the in-school workshops and summer and after-school Science-in-the-Park workshops* have provided unforgettable learning experiences for youngsters. They have inspired and excited youngsters about the environment as has the free reptile shows we have sponsored which enabled children and their parents to see, touch and learn about a wide variety of lizards, snakes, turtles, etc., including a five foot yellow python and a four foot alligator.. These programs help our children meet NYC Department of Education performance standards in science. Our center houses a small live animal exhibit which supports our workshops.
Participants in Science-in-the-Park program are not just individual registrants. We offer workshops to summer day camps, home/school networks and other child-centered organizations. There are activities for every season, every child, every educator, and every adult.
