NRT's Family Programs
Family Science Outings
sponsored by North Easton Savings Bank
Join NRT naturalists for this new and exciting set of programs geared towards getting families involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) related activities and events. Families can enjoy experiments, hikes, species analyses, hands-on activities, and so much more! The Family Science Outings are rain or shine- if it's raining or snowing, then all of the activities will be held indoors. Outing activities are appropriate for all age levels, from young adventurers to adults. Individuals and families are welcome.
This is generally an indoor/outdoor event so please come dressed for the weather.
$5/family (up to 6 people) for all NRT members and $10/family (up to 6 people) for non-members.
No pre-registration required. Class space and supplies may be limited.
Call the education department for details: 508-238-6049.
All outings will meet inside the Carriage House on our Sheep Pasture property at 307 Main St., N.Easton, MA 02356.
In the event that one of the sessions is cancelled or changed, please check our website for the latest information.
For more information about Family Science Outings, or if you are planning to bring a large group (10 or more) please email the NRT Education Department at email@example.com or call the NRT office prior to the event.
