Con Edison Family Science Night – Exploring Planetary Science! Wednesday, December 19

Wednesday, December 19: Save the date for Con Edison Family Science Night – the topic for this month will be Planetary Sciene!

We are happy to launch our second season of Con Edison Family Science Night, a series of free monthly sessions featuring science topics and experiments designed for children and parents to accomplish together. Registration is required through this site.  For questions, please call the Greenbelt Nature Cener: 718-351-3450. Free online registration is here – mandatory as class size is limited.

This Family Science Night is out of this world! Experience intergalactic elements that connect all matter in the universe, while learning about our planetary home’s place within the cosmos.

A few short, self-guided activities will start families thinking together, followed by a full group activity. These programs are designed for families with children ages 8 – 10 years old. We cannot accomodate younger children – thank you for your cooperation.* 

During our programs, one adult must accompany each child, with no more than two adults accompanying the child. (No organized groups, please).  Adults should be actively engaged and assisting their children with the activities. Please refrain from cell phone use aside from taking photographs of your child(ren) or using the phone as a stop watch during activities.

Please call 718-351-3450 to add your name to the waiting list if you have been closed out of registration. We will contact you if spots become available.

*Please note that we cannot accommodate any children who are not currently in this age range. This includes the younger siblings of any registered participant as well as any toddlers or babies in arms, carriers, slings or strollers. Registration is required, and class size is limited; we will maintain a waiting list as sessions fill quickly.
