Storytime Science for Kids: Lamplights and Fireflights

Saturdays and Sundays, December 3–24 and 31, 2022 • Noon and 2:00 p.m.

Bechtel Gallery 3, Classroom 1606

Limited capacity and recommended for families with kids ages 4 to 7.

Note: Storytime Science for Kids is free with museum admission—and it's always free for Daytime members. Just bring your membership card and ID.

Join us for Storytime Science—a storybook read-aloud followed by a related activity geared toward children (and their grown-ups). To celebrate our luminous exhibition Glow, the Exploratorium’s Vivian Altmann will read from a different book about fireflies each week. After the story, use simple materials to make your own glowing objects. Take your creations home and keep the fun going!

Note: On Saturday, December 10, join us instead for hands-on activities and a reading of Octopuses Have Zero Bones with author Anne Richardson. On Saturday, December 3, a special Storytime Science  pop-up will take place in Osher Gallery 1, with readings every half hour from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
