ARROYO GRANDE, CA – Families looking for in-person learning opportunities for their children can take advantage of a new science program called Science-Dipity in the Park. This class is scheduled on Fridays at Strother Park for families and individual children. The class will be offered in three sessions beginning Friday, September 18, 2020.
During Science-Dipity in the Park for Families, families with children 4-8 years old are invited to Strother Park for their own personal 30-minute science class (between 8:30 a.m. and noon). Science-Dipity’s founder, Tim Baker, will guide families as they create a science artifact together including a blow ball pipe, tornado tube, a bubble window and much more. These enriching three outdoor sessions consisting of four Fridays will begin September 18, October 16, and November 20 for $109 per session including materials.
For young scientists 7 -11 years old, Baker will offer the Science-Dipity in the Park Science Academy outdoors at Strother Park with social distancing practices and plenty of hands-on, materials-intensive science exploration. These enriching three sessions consisting of four Fridays each from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. will begin September 18, October 16, and November 20, 2020. The curriculum will introduce concepts in fluid-dynamics, topology and math, chemistry, forces, energy, motion, and physiology with engaging activities that encourage creative thinking and discovery. Registration for each session is $150 including materials.
“At a time when so many families are distance learning, these classes are designed to provide a return to in-person instruction in an engaging and joyful way,” commented Tim Baker, founder of Science-Dipity, Inc. “In the face of the present pandemic, we have redesigned our popular science offerings to incorporate all of the current safety guidelines making science discovery not only possible but inspirational all while six feet apart.”
A 20% sibling discount is available. Advance registration is strongly recommended as class size for both programs is limited.
