Little Edisons – Rainbows and Prisms

Click Here to Register

October 1, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 11:45 pm EDT

What colors are hiding in white light? Little Edisons find out when they read the book Rainbows and use a flashlight and a CD to make their own rainbow in a bowl of water. Then participants make a spectroscope to “bend light” anywhere and a suncatcher with a prism to cast rainbows in their window at home.

miSci’s Little Edisons program, for kids ages 3 to 5, is fun way to nurture the curiosity of pint-sized future engineers, chemists, and inventors. Sessions are 45 minutes long and feature hands-on activities designed to teach problem solving and encourage the joy of discovery. Little Edisons takes place Wednesdays, from 12 to 12:45 p.m., and Saturdays, from 11 to 11:45 a.m. The fee is $12 per child for non-members and $10 for Members. Adults accompanying a child are not required to purchase an additional ticket. Materials are included.
