This national survey about young children and science provides a window into parents’ perceptions of early science learning at home—and presents some opportunities for improvement.

Join us for a discussion about how early experiences with science can help children develop the problem-solving skills they need for life, and get a hands-on experience of your own with the kinds of science activities you can do with the young learners in your life.

This event is free and open to the public, just make sure you RSVP.
