Science in the Parks

Science in the Parks is an interactive outreach program designed for children of all ages, especially preschool through middle school, as well as their families.  The free program visits six parks each summer in the Ogden area, in conjunction with Ogden School District’s free summer lunch program.  Each week we visit a different park, and each day of the week we present a different collection of interactive, playful, and fun science activities.

Take a look at some more background and information, read our recent newscontact us, volunteer, or explore other resources we’re developing.
