ASD: Shapes and Patterns

Family Science Adventure Workshop 

Loading Events

(THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL)

Discover shapes and patterns everywhere you look. Practice making patterns with everyday materials and explore the delightful results of repetitive design.

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.

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. Materials 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.

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

 

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