Hands-on learning for all ages

Spending time in nature leads to a lot of questions. Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center educators will guide learners in getting answers through hands-on experiments and outdoor exploration during the new series, DIY Science.

The series kicks off with “Snow Science” on Saturday, February 8 from 10–12 pm. The white stuff that falls from the sky and gives us hills to sled down is more than a pretty coating on the landscape. This DIY Science program will introduce learners of all ages to the fascinating properties of snow by identifying common shapes of snow crystals, dissecting a snowpack, and more. The majority of the hands-on learning will take place outside, so participants will need to dress for the weather.

DIY Science features activities and inquiries specially designed for children and adults to enjoy together. Future program topics include Homemade Weather Stations (Saturday, April 4), Build a Terrarium (Wednesday, July 15), Make & Use a Compass (Saturday, September 12) and The Granite in New Hampshire (Saturday, October 17).
