Rooted in Science!
At Carnegie Science Center, we recognize that every child should have equal access to an environment that fosters curiosity, encourages the desire to learn, and explores all realms of science. We’ve teamed up with Growing Great and Del Monte Foods, Inc., in their National STEM Education Initiative to educate students and families on the science of planting, growing, and eating healthy foods.
Rooted in Science! will feature monthly storytimes and activities exploring the science behind fruits and vegetables and the importance of nutrition — all while helping to inspire healthy eaters.
Looking for more activities? Check out last year’s program in partnership with Growing Great and Del Monte, Lettuce Grow Together!

They like to use mud to build their homes. Explore how to build a mason bee home using recycled materials with this experiment!
