May 10

Join us for hands-on science experiments and sensory-rich art projects in workshops specially designed for young children, ages 3–5, with autism spectrum disorder and their parents and siblings.

Family Science Adventures for kids with differences include a small teacher to student ratio as students practice focusing/concentration, social cognition, collaboration/teamwork, listening/comprehension skills
and more. Our educators are trained to work with kids with differences.

These free workshops provide opportunities to enjoy family time at the museum in a welcoming, safe and understanding environment, allow parents to network with one another, and help families discover the wonder of science learning together. Special needs will include visual schedules, a communication booklet and more.

Sometimes creativity can get messy, so please dress your little scientist (and yourself) in old clothing that can be splattered.

For more information or to register, call 718-699-0005 ext. 341 or email dmeza@nysci.org.
