Science Programs for Kids.

A Resource for Hands-on Science Learning.

March 10, 2018

We were so inspired by what our kids learned by attending one of the many events held by the North Carolina Science Festival that we decided to put together a resource that would make parents aware of the many educational opportunites available to their children in their surrouning area. This resource is very new and will take some time to put together. We would love your input along the way. Please join our facebook group KidsWithoutTablets and share your local programs. They will definitely be added to the list.
