Hooray for Mondays! Science initiation workshops
For a fourth summer, Profaqua will be on site every Monday from June 27 to August 22 inclusive. Every week, children ages six and up can participate in a different workshop that will include surprising experiments and educational games—all specially designed to make them laugh and think. There will be something for everyone, including themes on plants, insects, dinosaurs, fossils, magic and much more!
