Science
**Lights On** What is light? Interactive and hands-on activities will assist preschoolers to understand light. How light helps us to see, how light can change colors and that light is made up of all the colors of the rainbow are some of the concepts introduced in this workshop. 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.
