Storytime in the Dome: The Prairie That Nature Built

On the wide open prairie, animals abound! Join us in the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater as we read the book The Prairie That Nature Built. From tiny insects to majestic bison, this story will help children understand the interconnectedness of plants and animals as they explore one of the most endangered ecological systems in the world.

After we see the pages turn on the big screen, join us in the Learning Labs to make your very own nature pendant to take home with you!

Little STEAMers: Three Little Pigs Architecture

We’ll huff and we’ll puff and we’ll blow that house down! During this class, children will hear a reading of the classic story The Three Little Pigs. After storytime, kids will tap into their inner engineer as they practice building homes made of straw, sticks and bricks! They’ll also make a painting using their big bad wolf breaths!

Through storytime, crafts, and hands-on activities, your preschooler will get to explore the building blocks of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math at Little STEAMers! Designed especially for children 3-5 years old and their caregivers. Join us on the 2nd & 4th Thursday of the month, at both 10:15am & 2:15pm.
