Designed for children with autism spectrum disorder
Home is where the heart is! Explore various animal homes and learn about habitats, the plants and animals within them, and how they are all connected.
Join us for hands-on science experiments and sensory-rich projects in workshops specially designed for children, ages 5–7, with autism spectrum disorder and their parents and siblings.
Science Scouts workshops 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. Materials will include visual schedules, a communication booklet and more.
Sometimes creativity can get messy, so please dress your young scientist (and yourself) in old clothing that can be splattered.

This program is free for families and is made possible through generous support from the Jesse and Joan Kupferberg Foundation.
