Girls Who Code – 3rd-5th Grade Club

Girls Who Code 3rd-5th Grade Clubs are a community of girls who actively design, code, read, and explore together. Featuring activities, characters, and vocabulary drawn from the best-selling Girls Who Code books, 3rd-5th Grade Clubs expose girls to bravery, resilience, and computational thinking at the exact moment when research indicates that their interest is high.
Each meeting will include fun, interactive activities that are unique to Girls Who Code. A typical meeting starts with girls reading together from a part of the book. Then they discuss questions that relate to both the book and important concepts, like bravery and sisterhood. The Club will then take on a creative challenge that relates to the chapter they read, either unplugged or online.
Girls Who Code will meet on Thursday from 4:15 – 5:15 p.m. for six weeks beginning April 4. Meeting dates are April 4, 11, 18, and 25; and, May 2 and 9. 
HOW TO SIGN UP: Pre-registration is required for this FREE club. Email to receive an invitation to sign up.

STEM Adventure Camp

Gateway to Science will be offering our summer science exploration program, STEM Adventure Camp, for children entering grades 1-5 in the fall of 2019. This summer, we will also be offering two weeks of camp for students entering grades 6-9. Every day of every week is a new adventure, with plenty of fun STEM projects and activities. We do our best to build camp activities around the interests of students registered for each week of camp. In addition, professional scientists may drop in throughout the summer to share STEM lessons and activities to give campers a taste of “real-life” science!

Gateway to Science offers full and half day options, with the first camp week scheduled for May 28-31. Member registration opens March 25; non-member registration opens March 27. Check out the full STEM Adventure Camp schedule and make your summer plans now!

STEM Adventure Mini-Camp March 25

STEM Adventure Mini-Camps are held during the school year on select days when there is no school. Our next Mini-Camp is set for Monday, March 25. We do a variety of activities at each mini-camp. We try to build camp activities based on the interests of the children registered for that particular camp so be sure to include your child’s interests on the registration form. Register TODAY!

Science First Fridays – 9:00 – 10:00 a.m.

Science First Fridays is a special time set aside for early learners to be in the gallery exclusively. The Science First – For Early Learners area within the gallery offers age appropriate hands-on activities for ages 0 – 5 and their families focusing on themes such as sorting, building, magnetism, and sensory exploration. Coffee is available during Science First Fridays, or bring your favorite coffee with you (covered containers only, please).

The Science First area is open any time the gallery is open. And on Friday mornings, we offer an EXCLUSIVE hour in the gallery from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. for children birth to 5-years-old and their families. Regular admission rates will apply; members admitted free.

March 30 Preschool Discovery Hour 

Preschool Discovery Hour is a unique program for preschoolers (ages 3-K). It allows them to informally learn science concepts with their favorite adult, without the pressure of understanding everything. The sessions are fun and hands-on. Each week’s lesson can stand alone, so come when you can and don’t worry when you can’t! No pre-registration is required.

Preschool Discovery Hour is from 10:30 – 11:15 am on select Saturdays. The next PDH session will be Saturday, March 30. 

Preschool Discovery Hour is for children ages 3 years – Kindergarten and their parent or other favorite adult. We allow up to two children per adult. Each child will be charged separately. Preschool Discovery Hour is FREE for Gateway to Science members. Non-Members may pay $7.00 per session. Check the Preschool Discovery Hour schedule for more dates.
