The Sitka Sound Science Center will kick off its Discovery Days program for the 2015-16 school year with a program from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 19, at the center.
The free Discovery Days education program is for annual pass holders and takes place on various Saturdays (usually alternate Saturdays). This is a family event and open to learners of all ages. The Discovery Days program launched in November 2013 and previous programs have been about kitchen chemistry, electricity, fossils, birds, ice, animal tracks, plants, herring, plankton, amphibians, everyday scientists, and hearts, plus there was an overnight aquarium sleepover for kids and parents. The group also has hosted a booth at the annual Family Science Day at Keet Gooshi Heen Elementary School.
In addition, don’t forget the Sitka Sound Science Center also runs a program called, “Sitka Sprouts: Planting the Seeds of Science in the Next Generation,” for kids ages 3-5. Sitka Sprouts takes place at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesdays at the Sitka Sound Science Center. The program features stories, activities and crafts, and the kids are encouraged to dress for the weather.
