Coding Bash – A Science Workshop for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

 

Loading Events

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
