February 13th & 14th

Water, Water Everywhere

Did you know we drink the same water the dinosaurs drank? We will take a look at how Earth naturally recycles water through the water cycle, and how it all starts with the Sun. We’ll also look at different types of water sources and how pollution can affect them.  

February 20th & 21st

Earth, Ecosystems, & Survival

Our Earth is incredibly diverse. We will take a look at different types of ecosystems, how plants and animals adapt and survive in unique environments, and how humans are affecting the ecosystems around us.

Severe Weather Awareness

Bad weather might be on its way. Learn about fire whirls, make “lightning bolts” stand on end, and more as we learn about what weather is and what types there are. Let’s learn what to expect and how we can prepare ourselves and our families for possible severe weather this spring- we may even meet an actual meteorologist!

Animal Kingdom

Let’s dive into the worlds of mammals, birds, fish, and invertebrates! We’ll explore what makes something a living thing, what living things need, and what makes each group of animals so unique from the others. We will even have some of our resident education animals joining us.

March 27th & 28th

Reptiles & Amphibians

From slithering to hopping, we will discuss the differences between reptiles and amphibians. We will take a closer look at some of the reptiles and amphibians here at the Science Spectrum, and even take a look inside a frog with a dissection!
