Inquiring Minds Want to Know

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.

Certificates for participation are provided upon completion of the class.

Participants have the option to attend and actively participate via computer, or an app on a tablet or smartphone. Attendees can also listen to the presentation via phone (by calling in). Those who choose to call in must contact the instructor for instructions on how to be eligible for a certificate.

If multiple people in the same location want to participate in the webinar and need certificates, they have to join the webinar separately or contact the instructor for special instructions to each receive a certificate.
