Science, Discovery and Exploration

Kids come to us filled with questions... but without instruction manuals for the answers! Sometimes it's nice to let them figure it out themselves. Science experiments help them delve deep into their questions and come back out knowing more than they ever thought possible. (And certainly more than we ever could have told them!)
