Preschool Science Workshops & Outreach

Preschool Science Workshops/Outreach Flyer

The Museum is a great place for preschool groups!  With the Museum's hands-on workshops, touchable exhibits, dino dig, and kid's room, preschoolers have a great place to learn and play.

Workshop topics:

Alaskan Animals:  Preschoolers explore Alaska’s animals past and present and discover animal tools for the task.  The workshop concludes with a story and snack time* in the raptor area.
Have a Whale of a Time:  Can your preschoolers speak whale?  In this fun workshop preschoolers will hear and try to copy the sounds whales make, compare whales to other marine animals, experiment with how whales stay warm, and step into an inflatable life size humpback whale!  The workshop concludes with a story and snack time*.
Your Pet Dinosaur:  Everyone loves T-Rex, but would your preschoolers like him as a pet?  Preschoolers learn about the dinosaurs that lived in Alaska and what it would be like to care for them today.  The workshop concludes with a story and snack time* in the dinosaur area.
