Our preschool programs are designed to fit the learning style of preschool-aged children. Classes are taught in an inquiry-based, hands-on atmosphere. Our objective is to bring out your preschoolers’ natural curiosity and increase their understanding of the world around them.

Our programs are typically 45 minutes in length. Most preschool programs include a take-home project. Each preschool group will receive an age-appropriate planetarium show included with the purchase of an on-site Learning Lab program.

Learning Labs that are available for traveling science outreach programs are indicated with an asterisk (*).


Get ready to get messy as we make observations of bubbles and learn what makes them “pop!” We’ll explore their strength, shape, colors, and more as we blow bubbles everywhere!

Float Your Boat*

Why do some objects sink and some objects float? Your students will find out as they make predictions and test different materials to see what sinks and what floats. Students will build and test their own boat to apply their understandings of why certain objects float, then see what happens when they add cargo to their creations.

Gravity Games*

Investigate how objects move by racing to the end of your very own slide! Students will work together to discover how gravity affects falling objects and think about how to change the speed of a toy figure on a slide of their own construction.

I Want to be an Astronaut*

Learn how astronauts live and work in space. Learn about gravity and how rockets launch astronauts and their cargo into space. Students will make a twirly spacecraft and we will launch a mini-rocket in class!

Let’s Get Buggy*

Learn about crickets, bees, and butterflies! Your students will learn all about crickets and why pollinators like bees and butterflies are important to our environment. Students will create pollinator flowers and simulate how bees help our gardens grow before making a model cricket to take home.

Wild Weather*

What’s the weather today? Learn about patterns as we identify how the life cycle of a cloud can help us understand what the weather might be like tomorrow. Make a cloud identifier to help you keep track at home!
