This new mecca for tiny science geeks hosts hour-and-a-half classes and hands-on workshops that encourage exploration. Among this season’s offerings: Candy Chemistry (grades K–2) has kids using air pressure to mash marshmellows and extracting DNA from strawberries to practice measurement, observe and track their observations like a for-real scientist; Maker Magic has kids (grades 2–5) making light up wristbands and a solids and liquids lava lamp, using fundamental science concepts to build. Plus, they offer free after-school pick up (and the option of after-care!) from local public schools. Ages 2–11.
