The invitation to play and learn with us is always open.
Use these resources as jumping off points for inspired science learning at home. Activities use simple materials commonly found around the house. Check back often and have fun learning!
This program was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services MA-10-18-0192-18, the Canaday Foundation, and the Mergens Foundation.
You and your family can try these engineering design challenges right at home with materials you might already have around the house! Check in every Thursday for a new challenge. The goal is to get you thinking like an engineer with problem-solving and having some hands-on, learning fun.
Join us for Science & Stories online with ECHO Youth Programs Manager, Elizabeth Nuckols. Every Wednesday, Elizabeth engages audiences with song, reading a book, and a hands-on component around different seasonal topics.
Every Friday we will be highlighting a different plant or animal and then challenging you to get outside, make observations, and discover incredible wildlife near you. Check it out and let us know what you find in your backyard!
Researched and vetted by ECHO’s Educators, these resources will link you to other incredible online resources for learning and fun. From early learners to adults, there are online resources for everyone.
