KID Museum provides impactful hands-on learning that is empowering kids to become the creative problem-solvers of tomorrow. On Friday, February 15, from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m., the KID Museum's educators are bringing their programming to WES! The Explorer Program will give students a sample of the Museum's innovative activities that develop STEAM skills while encouraging creativity and critical thinking.

Activities will include:

•    Wind Tubes—Create a flying machine and test it in a wind tube. Predict and observe how your creation will fly, and change flight patterns by altering materials, shape, size, and weight.

•    Circuits—Experiment with circuits by connecting power to lights and motors. Add switches and multiple outputs and experiment with serial and parallel circuits. 

•    Ozobots—Create your own adventure for pocket-sized robots called Ozobots. Learn how your robot "sees" using its sensors and program it using lines and colors.

Friday, February 15, is a noon dismissal. Participants must be current Grade 1-5 WES students and will need to bring lunch to eat from noon to 12:25 p.m. The program will begin at 12:30 p.m. There are a total of 50 spots are available—you must RSVP for your child(ren). Students who do not RSVP will go to Extended Day, and families will pay the drop-in rate. To RSVP click HERE and complete the form.


This opportunity is made possible through WES's partnership with the KID Museum.
