Fragrant as a Flower: Discovering Smell and Taste (PreK-1)

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday June 3

10:30 AM  –  11:30 AM

Every child is a natural born scientist! Encourage their curiosity through hands-on explorations of the physical sciences at the Children’s Science Center Lab.  


How do we smell different scents? What do our noses have to do with how things taste? Where do smells and tastes come from? Our June Family Workshop opens with Lawrence F. Lowery’s vibrantly illustrated book, Fragrant as a Flower, and includes hands-on sensory experiences that help children and their grown-ups learn about our sense of smell. Children will make herb and spice sensory play dough, plant an herb garden, create a lavender blossom salt painting—and take home each of their creations!
