This summer, the Imagination Station Science and History Museum will offer a free interactive learning program for preschool children ages 2-5 and an accompanying adult, the second Tuesday of every month from 10 to 10:30 a.m. Preschoolers will learn about science through hands-on lessons and activities.

After the program, participants are encouraged to visit the museum for free.

During the program on June 11, She Sells Sea Shells, students will learn about all the different shells and animals that live in them on our coast. They will also be able to take home a shell imprint of their own.

On July 9, pre-schoolers will be able to live the life of a bat through interactive games and activities. They will be able to fly around the museum with some bat wings and see if they have what it takes to be a vampire bat.

In the program Time for Tree-School on Aug. 13, students will hear the story of the Lorax and learn why trees are so important. They will be able to take home recycled planters to plant their own tree in their backyard.
