A fun approach to science this week
October 22, 2013 by Sarah
The Science Playground provides children with a wealth of activities and learning opportunities related to science, all of which are designed to be fun and entertaining. Banner printing, poster printing, and flyer printing were most likely used to promote this educational function to people in Secaucus, as well as those living in the surrounding cities and towns.
Using playground elements as learning opportunities, such as fog machines, sand pits, seesaws, and slides, guests will find information on the scientific principles behind water, wind, sun, simple machines, sight, sound, balance, and motion. They can then build on these basic science principles while operating a huge lever, playing in the water play area, attempting sounds at the wind pipes, traversing a large climbing net, Archimedes screw, and enjoying the beat of metal drums. This event is ideal for people of all ages and provides a wealth of hands-on learning experience. All children must be accompanied by an adult, and some of the activities take place outdoors, so people are reminded to dress appropriately.
The cost is $11 per adult over 18 and $8 for students with ID, seniors, and children ages 2 to 17. The Science Playground will be happening on Thursday, October 24, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at the New York Hall of Science located at 47-01 111th Street in Corona, New Jersey, just a short drive down the road from Secaucus. To learn more about this educational event, or to purchase tickets, please visit the New York Hall of Science website or call its offices during business hours.
