Science Saturdays

Science Saturdays begin April 21 at Springmill Learning Center in Mansfield.

MANSFIELD – Students in grades Kindergartent through 6th grade and their families can join in on hands-on, interactive science-related activities from 9 a.m. to noon April 21 at Springmill Learning Center.

Activities are led by professors from The Ohio State University at Mansfield in the Springmill STEM galleries, which include Alternative Energy, CSI, Earth Studies, Feathers & Flight, Gears, Number Sense, and Ecology. Students in grades 4 to 6 and their families will visit three of the galleries each visit, with new activities scheduled each visit.

In recognition of Springmill Elementary School receiving the Ohio Department of Education designation of STEM school, students in grades K-3 and their families will also be able to participate in activities. Ohio State early childhood education majors will lead families in activities geared for that age group. A responsible adult must remain with students during the session.

Science Saturdays is made possible through a partnership between the Mansfield City School District, The Ohio State University at Mansfield and through a grant by the Connections Fund with Richland County Foundation.
