Science for Young Minds

''This program, which includes activity sheets and lesson plans, helps adults foster interest in and enthusiasm for science in young children. By teaching adults how the scientific process of observing, predicting, experimenting and interpreting enhances the development of young children, it helps adults build the foundation children will need to understand more complex science concepts in the future.

The program also equips children with skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making as well as building self-confidence, stimulating curiosity and developing language skills.
