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.

All activities are free to all comers, hosted from approximately 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM, coinciding with Ogden School District’s free lunch program hosted at each of these parks. Each day of the week will celebrate a different theme and a different set of activities, and these will be cycled through at each park. We’ve teamed up with Arts in the Park again so that we follow them through town.
