Science Sprout Days

Science Sprout Days are dedicated to early learners (ages 6 and under). On Science Sprout Days, Discovery Center staff will not schedule any field trips for groups over age 6. You and your young scientists will be able to explore, discover, and enjoy the Discovery Center surrounded by other young scientists! Special science demonstrations, science story times, and hands-on experiences will be available each Science Sprout Day. Come back often because there's a different topic each month. General admission applies. 

Get ready to join us for an all new Science Sprout adventure! This year, we'll be featuring a variety of community partners who will have new demonstrations to show off each month! Mark your calendars now so you don't miss any of these great opportunities to encourage your young scientist!

Story times:

10 AM and 1PM

Demo times:
