Parent-Child Science Activities with Veggies & Fruits
April 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Without their families’ help, children can’t do science experiments at home, plant seeds or even have access to veggies and fruits. How does your science center adapt programs to engage parents so that learning and healthy snacking continues? Do you use take-home pieces to inform parents about what their children learned? Do parents participate alongside their children?
During a webinar on April 21, presenters from the Detroit Zoo, Discovery Place Kids, Marbles Kids Museum, and Saint Louis Science Center shared and compared parent-child activities vs. child-only activities—some that work well, and some that don’t. Led by GrowingGreat, STEM educators who work with PreK–5th grade students are addressing under-resourced families’ lack of access to fresh produce and green space by reinventing education programs.
Watch the recorded webinar to learn about a variety of perspectives, teaching techniques and programs, along with seven hands-on STEM, garden and nutrition activities. These activities are designed for children in grades PreK–5 and can be adapted to your own program needs.
