Virtual Leap into Science Registration
Leap into Science is a nationwide program developed by The Franklin Institute Science Museum that integrates open-ended science activities with children’s books, designed for children ages 3-10 and their families. The program empowers educators to offer workshops in community settings like libraries, museums, and out-of-school time programs to engage underserved audiences in accessible and familiar settings.
Full - January Cohort 1 - Please select a cohort in February.
Cohort 2 - 2 pm on Tuesdays - February 09,16, and 23
Cohort 3 - 10 am on Fridays - February 12,19, and 26
Upon completion of 3 sessions, each organization (50 total available) will receive a supplemental kit of materials to create "Grab and Go kits" to complement the Leap into Science Virtual Program.
Plus if this is your first year you can receive an educator kit that provides all the materials needed to present a virtual or in person Leap into Science Light and Shadow workshop for the families your organization works with.
