Nature and Science at Wonder Works: Rocks for Play and Learning
February 17, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$7
We will have lots of rocks at Wonder Works today, including big rocks to touch, smaller rocks to sort, and tiny rocks to sift from the art room sandbox. You also can collect coal and iron ore hauled by our O-scale model railway and rocks of many different colors. The play dough table will be set up as a quarry, where diggers and dump trucks excavate rocks and crystals and wooden trains haul them all away.
*Please note that if you do not choose West or Southwest for the region selection, your event will not appear in the calendar. All events will be reviewed before publishing to the calendar. Event approval usually occurs on Wednesdays; if you need your event to be reviewed before then, please email Annie at [email protected]
