Dr. Leonisa Ardizzone





Saturday, August 1st



Children are natural scientists, drawn to wonder, exploration, discovery, and analysis. Science---Not Just for Scientists! gives you simple ideas to open up the world of discovery to young children. Through open-ended explorations, you will discover how to cultivate children's natural curiosity by asking simple questions; How? When? Where? And the most famous of all children's questions: Why? The hands-on activities will empower children to question, experiment, and develop abstract reasoning skills. Children will explore patterns, cause and effect, size and scale, change and growth, energy, and how things work. Easy to follow, step-by-step activities lead children and their caregivers through a new world of discovery.

Dr. Scott





Saturday, August 8th


Meet Dr. Scott from the hit PBS show Dinosaur Train.

The average North American child currently spends about seven hours a day staring at screens, and mere minutes engaged in unstructured play outdoors, a dramatic transformation within the past generation. Yet recent research indicates that experiences in nature are essential for healthy growth. Regular exposure to nature can help relive stress, depression, and attention deficits. It can reduce bullying, combat obesity, and boost academic scores. Most critical of all, abundant time in natural settings seems to yield long-term benefits in kids' cognitive, emotional, and social development.

Dr. Scott's appearance will be followed by a book-signing of his new book, How to Raise a Wild Child, available for purchase in the park.
