Whitaker Center: STEM SENSORY DAYS

Sun January 13, 2019 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM
STEM Sensory Days at Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts.

On select Sundays over the next few months,  families affected by autism spectrum disorder are invited to explore Harsco Science Center (including special exhibits) during a special morning visit from 8:30am-11:30am, before the center opens to the public. Experience exhibits without heavy crowds when we have softened general lighting and decreased the noise level and visual stimulation on interactive exhibits wherever possible. To make the event as successful as possible, Whitaker Center staff attended an autism awareness training provided by ASERT staff!

The new Castle Builder: a LEGO Building Exhibit will also be open! 

Sunday, Nov 11

Sunday, Dec 9 (Santa will also be available during Quiet Santa Time)
