    Program Description

    Back by popular demand-there are additional new ‘Power Stations’ to enhance student’s scholastic instruction, along with extended engagement time with them! First grade students observe live plants and animals (touching-if they choose), as they differentiate between physical traits and give their best shot at sketching and labeling them. Register your group today and see what the adventure is all about!!
