Summer at Headwaters

The weather is heating up and we’re excited to offer fun and educational summer programming for all ages!!

Youth Summer Science Series: Solar Bags
Thursday, May 16 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

In May, young scientists see the incredible power of the sun by using our Solar Bag! The Solar Bag, which stretches to either 50 or 25 feet when inflated, harnesses solar energy to expand and float into the air.

Sponsored in partnership with the McKenna Children’s Museum.

Youth Summer Science Series: Meteorite Hunt
Thursday, June 20  7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

It’s likely that hundreds, maybe even thousands, of meteorites have hit your house. Thankfully, these tiny particles don’t do any damage. In June, we’ll use neodymium magnets to scour the Headwaters grounds in search of tiny iron meteorite fragments!

Recycling 101
Saturday, June 22 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.

Have you ever wondered what happens to your recyclables after the truck picks them up at your house? Curious about what you can put in your clue cart or bring for drop-off? Wondering how you can recycle more? This is your chance to get answers to these questions and more!

Yoga at the Headwaters
Saturday, June 29 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Come enjoy a morning out at the Headwaters enjoying an introduction class to Ashtanga Yoga!

Youth Summer Science Series: Owl Pellets
Thursday, July 18 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Owls are birds of prey, which means they hunt the animals they eat. After an owl eats the small rodents, birds, and bugs that are part of its nightly diet, its stomach cannot digest the fur, bones, teeth, feathers, and insect shells from that food. These “extra” parts are formed into a tight pellet inside the owl and are later spit up. Our scientists will have the opportunity to examine the inside of their owl pellet!

Sponsored in partnership with the McKenna Children’s Museum.

Youth Summer Science Series: Rocks Matter!
Thursday, August 15 7:00 – 8:00 p.m.

In this lesson, young scientists learn all about ROCKS! Learn about how geologists study rocks, wash rocks, and also classify rocks. We also play a fun “Will It Float?” game!
