Emphasizing exploration and curiosity, this guidebook promotes examination of the science behind each activity. Designed for young children, its activities are accessible for kids and instructors at all levels of scientific knowledge.

Designed for use by parents and young children, this book has been extensively tested to make it easy to use and highly accessible, even for leaders with no science background. It emphasizes exploration and curiosity rather than scientific knowledge, helps instructors learn to explain the science behind each activity only when the child requests it. Some activities may be difficult to modify for afterschool use.
