Terre Haute Children's Museum Offers Summer Programming

[Terre Haute, IN, June 4, 2020] - This summer, the Terre Haute
Children's Museum is excited to offer two programs to help children
explore, discover and experiment with the world around them in fun,
interactive ways.

The first program is Museum in the Park. What could be more fun this
summer then combining your love of the Terre Haute Children's Museum
with your love for our fantastic city and county parks? Museum in the
Park is a two-hour session held at various local parks throughout our
community to enjoy science in the sun. Two sessions will be held each
day of the program. The morning sessions will be from 9:30-11:30 a.m.
and the afternoon will be from 1-3:00 p.m. Each session is limited to
twelve children. There will be four topics throughout the summer:
Motion, Bugs, Messy Science, and Build. Earn all four stickers for
your special badge by completing each session. The first two sessions
will be about motion and will be at Hawthorn Park on June 22 and
Fowler Park on June 23. More sessions will be added weekly. Cost is
$15/child for non-members and $12/child for members.

The second program is Everyday Science Club. Families can sign-up for
this virtual experience to learn about all the amazing science that
is happening around your own home. The program consists of two half
hour sessions that let children independently explore the science at
home. Day 1 is an exciting live video call with a museum educator
that provides inspiration and instructions for the experiment using a
few easily found items. Day 2 is a virtual show and share with the
students and discussion revealing the science. The first Club
meetings will be on June 25 and 26 from 10:30-11:00 a.m. We will be
exploring the science of make-up removal. You will register as a
family, though each club topic will note the target age group. Cost
is $12/family (includes both days) for non-members and $10/family for
members. As an added bonus, you will have access to the recorded
sessions throughout the summer, in case you want to repeat or review

"While our summer programming will look a little different this year,
we are really excited about Museum in the Park and Everyday Science
Club," Susan Turner, executive director, said. "Our core mission is
to educate and excite children about science. I can't think of a
better way to meet that mission then by making it pertain to their
everyday lives. And, I love that we've partnered with the city and
county parks to host some of our programs. We are fortunate to have
this great resource in our community."

Thanks to generous donations, scholarships are available for both
programs. To learn more about or to register for Museum in the Park

We are looking forward to a summer of safe fun with the children of
the Wabash Valley!
