March 30: Inquiring Minds Want to Know: Science for Young Children

For young children, the scientific process begins with observing, predicting, experimenting and interpreting. These explorations lay the foundation for future understanding of more complex science concepts. This program helps adults understand how science experiences promote child development, build self-confidence, stimulate curiosity and develop language skills. Participants in this workshop will be provided with 16 hands-on activities that they can implement with young children.

Extension Extras Parenting Hour is a free online series of parenting workshops that provides guidance for parents of young children as they navigate the joys, challenges and concerns of parenting.
