Family Science Outside: Maple Sugaring brings at-home learners and their grown-ups into the living lab of the great outdoors to explore the science and math behind making maple syrup! This choose-your-own adventure style experience is a perfect escape from screens, but also a real-world supplement to school studies (aligned with many area school curricula, and state and national standards).
This experience includes:
When? February 23-25 or 28. Families/cooperative groups/”pods” can register for their own time slot on one of the available dates. Time slots are available for one family/cooperative group/”pod” at a time (max 12 people/group) on Tuesday, Feb 23 through Thursday, Feb 25 at 9, 10, 11, or 1 each day, and on Sunday, February 28 every half hour from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
Who? Especially meant for families with children in grades 2-6, but siblings welcome.
How? Registration is required by clicking the register button or by calling 724-794-6011. When registering, register one responsible adult, and provide names for all other participants and include ages for children in the “Additional Info We Should Know” section. We’ll email a link to the virtual introduction and an electronic copy of the guide at least a day in advance of your scheduled time. Upon arrival, you’ll check out the loaner kit and receive the printed guide (if desired), then complete the activities together in designated areas of the park.
