|New Mad Science® Nature Program For Youth Offered on Oct. 27|
Nature is the topic of a new Mad Science® program for youth being offered in late October by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
This program is for ages seven through 12 and is designed to make learning about scientific concepts fun. Mad Science® Nature will combine science exploration with the animal kingdom as participants look at animal life cycles and characteristics and take part in a nature scavenger hunt. Participants in this all-day program should bring a lunch. Search for the keyword "science" to find these programs in the JCPRD's online listings.
The program will take place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct., 27 at Roeland Park Community Center, 4843 Rosewood, Roeland Park. For the convenience of working parents, children can be dropped off after 8:30 and picked up until 4 p.m. The cost for one six and one-half hour session is $35 per person for Johnson County residents or $39 per person for nonresidents. Preregistration is required and this type of class often fills quickly.
The JCPRD's ACTIVITIES catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pick-up at all Johnson County Library branches.
