Saturday May 26th - January 1, 2013
Louisville Science Center
A new exhibit specially designed to encourage science learning through the lens of play for children ages 3-7 and their caregivers. It celebrates the innate curiosity in children and connects science to everyday play.
Science in Play is a customized new exhibit, commissioned by and built specifically for the Science Center. It will serve as a test bed for a comprehensive upgrade of the Science Center's first floor to an expanded early childhood zone. This first phase will encompass 5,800 square feet and will be divided into six separate activity zones: The Sensory Course, Testing Area, Big Build, Small Build, Science Depot, and Shapes & Stuff Store. Rich in loose parts, sensory and intuitive materials, children and their caregivers will be invited to build, test, imagine, problem solve and engineer, behaving and thinking like scientists-all while playing. Signage will be designed and used to assist caregivers in interpreting play as learning. The experience will ultimately span about 12,000 square feet and is anticipated to open in 2014.
Admission to the exhibit is free with museum admission, which is $13 for adults, $11 for children ages 2-12, and free for Science Center members.

Kentucky's climate is perfect for growing fall and winter veggies in the garden.
Just when you've thrown in the tomato towel, wouldn't you love to have a new group of crops take over?
Spend a morning with Yew Dell Garden Manager Ann Mattingly to learn how to select and grow a bountiful fall and winter harvest.
Ann will cover variety selection, planting and protection strategies and we'll even have those hard-to-find transplants available for sale.
This is the final of Ann's 4-part vegetable gardening series - but you can sign up for just this one if you missed the rest!
