Children will explore early coding skills and concepts such as, patterns and sequencing, to solve problems that are fun and engaging. Families will work together in hands-on, computer-free games and activities to explore cause and effect, thinking step-by-step, and working collaboratively.
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.
These 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.
Age Range: children with autism who are 5-7 years old
