Cost: $30/participant

Participants must be able to pick up their kit from The Exploration Place.

Each participant will pick up a special kit from The Exploration Place before their week starts. This kit will include daily activities and supplies with some written instructions. Some of these materials are yours to keep. Others need a deposit and to be returned to the Exploration Place after the workshops are over (ex. Robots).

Each morning at 9 am, participants will be asked to join a 1 - 1.5 hour-long zoom chat with their facilitator. In this chat, they will receive instructions for that day's activity and will have some face-to-face time with their facilitators. Participants will have access to their facilitators throughout the day (9 am-4 pm/Mon-Fri) via email or zoom if there are any questions.

One Eventbrite ticket = one kit.

If you happen to have your own robot for the week you will not be required to pay a deposit.

If you would like to purchase one of the robots (Ozobot) please contact Jaclyn at jaclyn.baxter@theexplorationplace.com.

Learn to explore and recognize the world around you in this nature-based virtual workshop. From the insects and grass below your feet, all the way to the birds in the sky, we will look at how these organisms interact with each other and the rest of the world. Nature is not just one thing or one perceptive, and we are going to show you that in these workshops. This week is Nature-based and is aimed at participants age 3-5.
