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.

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.
