It’s time for spring adventures with our youngest scientists! Hands-on classes involve animals, simple science, art, and stories revolving around each tot/adult pair. Choose a five- or seven-class punch card to attend any combination of our class options. You must stick to your class time (a.m. or p.m.). Click here for the class schedule.
*Due to COVID-19, Nature Tots will be for the Nature Tot and one parent/adult only.
Up Close Critters
Set out on a fantastic adventure to uncover the wonders of the animal kingdom! Play animal games, create wild crafts, and get up-close to your favorite animals. From feather to fur and scales to slime, you’re going to have a WILD time becoming an animal expert.
Let’s explore nearby woods and streams where we’ll play outdoor games, create works of art with natural materials, and discover some of the animals that call these places home. Wear sturdy shoes for afternoons filled with nature play.
The Force, Of Course!
Discover the visible and invisible world of forces and motion. Investigate gravity, black holes, electromagnets and more as we make music, build super long bridges and design superfast cars. The force is strong in this class!
Spring Break Adventures: STEP Up to Science!
Space, Technology, Engineering, and Physics (STEP) are in play this week. Have fun with physics and enjoy awesome astronomy! We’ll take some time to explore our zoo and aquarium as we sample and experiment with a variety of science topics.
This spring, choose the topics that interest your learners, and plan sessions around a variety of science areas. Each session includes hands-on science focused on animal adaptations, physics, chemistry, primates and more. Choose a five- or seven-class punch card to attend any combination of our class options. Each class is geared towards the appropriate age level. Click here for the class schedule. Note: No class on April 20 or 21.
Join us for middle school science fun! Each session will focus on the animals that call the Greensboro Science Center home. We’ll learn about the classes of animals and meet old and new friends in the zoo and aquarium. We’ll discuss conservation, biodiversity and the species survival plans (SSP) at the GSC as we chat with keepers and go behind the scenes.
Story Build Adventures
Join us as we help our characters solve the problem of the day. The beginner builders will explore some fun machines using LEGO® DUPLO® bricks and learn the basics of how gears and levers work. Sign up for one or all five adventures!
Our Rookie Engineers will use either the LEGO WeDo 1 or 2.0 as they journey through STEAM activities. They’ll learn how to build and program themed robot models and continue to learn about problem-solving with simple machines using different programming blocks and sensors to help solve weekly science problems. Each 3-week session will have a different theme.
Spring Break Adventures: Engineering Sampler
Join us as we learn about different fun engineering topics such as robotics, programming, gaming, and building. Campers will also enjoy time in our zoo and aquarium and meet some animals.
FIRST® LEGO® League Experience/Spike Prime programming
FIRST LEGO League is an international competition in which students design and program LEGO® SPIKE Prime® robots to complete challenges on a themed mat. Students learn team-building skills, gain self-confidence, and create solutions for the challenges that are facing today’s scientists! Our Intermediate Engineers have the opportunity to train off-season so when they turn 10 years old by Sept. 1, 2022 they will be eligible to join a GSC team. This class does not guarantee a spot on a team in the fall but is a great way to build toward team participation.
FIRST® LEGO® League Experience/LEGO® Education SPIKE™ Prime
FIRST LEGO League (FLL) is an international competition in which students design and program robots to complete challenges on a themed mat. Students learn team-building skills, gain self-confidence, and create solutions for the challenges that are facing today’s scientists! Our Rookie Robotics students have the opportunity to train off-season so they will be eligible to join a GSC team. This class does not guarantee a spot on a team in the fall. It is also a great class for current FLL students to work on their skills.
