Mad Science, Mad Science of Long Island Keep In Touch (Preschool Workshop) Other,
Science
**Keep in Touch** Children will learn how they understand the world with their sense of touch and will also emphasize that some objects are safe to touch while others are not. The preschoolers will be presented with the challenge of identifying a variety of objects using only their sense of touch. They will also experiment with an interesting and innovative material to model their very own creation. These are programs specifically designed for children ages 3 and 4, and take place at your location. Our only requirements are: a room that can be darkened if needed, with tables and chairs where the children can work comfortably; a small table to set up our equipment and access to water and electricity. The children perform experiments, participate in demonstrations and, for most workshops, there is a take home item for each child at the end of the program.
