Preschool Discovery Hour

For preschoolers and their favorite adults

Preschool Discovery Hour (PDH)


What is PDH?

Preschool Discovery Hour is a FREE program where children and their favorite adults can participate in hands-on activities and explore concepts together. Early childhood educators will be present to engage little learners and their guardians in understanding the concepts together.

Who can attend?

Our littlest learners and their favorite adults can attend Preschool Discovery Hour. Older siblings are welcome to explore and participate as helpers!

This Months Program

This month we are celebrating our Earth with the help of our friends at North Dakota Forest Service! Collect pollen, determine the age of a tree, dance like a bee, and more with plenty of hands-on activities for our little learners and their adults to enjoy!

After the Program

Once the PDH program concludes, families are encouraged to explore the interactive exhibits gallery. The gallery will be open earlier to those who choose to stay and explore for a quieter environment before opening to the public at 10:00 a.m. Gateway to Science members can visit the gallery at no charge, while non-members will pay regular admission fees.
