ASD Workshops: Rockin’ Rockets

 

Loading Events

3…2…1… Blast off! Discover the wonders of outer space as you build and launch your own high-flying rocket that is out of this world.

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

ASD workshops for kids 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.

To register and for more information, call 718-683-9366 or email dmeza@nysci.org
Preregistration is required.

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