MONDAY: ECO “Showtime”

 
Guests holding snake — Award Winning in Millersville, MD
 
Ready to “break a leg?” so to speak? It's Showtime at Eco Adventures! Perfect your presentation skills and show your knowledge about how much you know about snakes, alligators, and more! Join us for a club dedicated to learning about animals and presenting animals to the public. Kids will learn presentation skills through a number of interactive activities that will put them to the test and have them thinking on their feet. Every other session the kids will pick a different animal to research, learn how to handle, and present. The best part is that we get to give our “show” to assisted living homes in the area. At the end of the second session kids will also put on a show for the parents.
**Field Trip NOTE** On field trip days we will be away from Eco Adventures until 5:30pm. Please note that with picking up. All field trip days will be on the website in advance for each session.
 

TUESDAY: Full S.T.E.A.M Ahead!

In this club we will move full STEAM ahead and explore the link between Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Drawing upon Eco Adventures' unique resources, special talents, and keen minds, our education team has created a dynamic, kid approved, set of STEAM activities that get kids excited! We're proud to be offering our Kid Approved STEAM activities in an all new after school Club. And, as always, Eco Adventures will bring it all together with fun, inquiry based, hands on learning, in a dynamic and high tech fashion. In each class, kids can interact with animals, create experiments, test theories, formulate questions, utilize gear and gadgets, incorporate artwork, and even devise creations. You won't want to miss a club of STEAM!
