Fire and Ice:
We are starting winter break off with a bang! We will be experimenting with all things hot and cold on this chilly day.

Light and Dark
You can’t get any more different than light and dark!  On this day we are talking all about space, stars and how light moves through what we call the dark.



Friday, Dec. 28
Realism and Abstract
In art, there are no wrong answers, but there are definitely different ways to get there! We are going to learn about realism and abstract art and try our hand at both.



Thursday, Jan. 3
Ancient and Modern
Technology is always changing, and on this day we will talk about inventions that changed our world forever from ancient times to modern. We will attempt to solve some of the world’s oldest problems with our brand new technology.



Friday, Jan. 4
Elephants and Mice
We are talking about some of our largest and smallest friends in the animal kingdom!  We will meet a few of our tiny friends here at the Discovery Center and do scientific experiments to see if we can out-weigh an elephant.
