Sturgeon City Programs
Part of Sturgeon City's mission is to help foster an awareness, appreciation and understanding of our local environment. In doing this, our goal is to help kids get into the outdoors by providing opportunities to make science come to life. Whether it is exploring Sturgeon City or creating wacky science experiments, participants respond enthusiastically to our interactive programming. When they are having fun while learning, children carry these lessons far into the future.
Little Learners is a pre-school age intro to nature program that will take place the first and third Tuesday of the month from 10am-11am. These programs will run September through February.
Our Parent’s Night Out events are fun, active and hands-on! While you enjoy a night out on the town, your kids have a great time with their friends! Pizza and a movie will start off the program and it will finish with a science activity. Activities include robotics, chemistry, biology and more! This is a program for 5-12 year old children.
