March 11, 2022- Too Good To Waste (Conservation)

Don’t throw away that banana peel! You can use that in a compost bin. Composting is a great way to lower food waste and get some good organic fertilizer on the way. Let’s learn how composting really works and how you can make a healthy garden in your own backyard.

April 15, 2023- Invasion of the Germs (Biology)

Germs are everywhere we go; but how can we avoid them? There are actually germs that are good for the human body too! Come to learn all about germs and germ contamination.

Toddler Time is a program for the Iron Hill Museum & Science Center! Each month, we are inviting all children ages 1-4 to learn about the world around them. Bring your babies out for a small walk, a story, and a craft to take home! Our science center also has coloring pages and wall magnets for sensory-friendly fun! Admission is $2 per person (children under 1 free for this program).

We are taking a small break from this program. Check back in July of 2023!
