PBS KIDS Family & Community Learning is a series of workshops that focus on learning through creative play and exploration! The STEM based, multi-generation engagement program is designed for kids ages 5-8 (younger/older siblings are welcomed) and are designed to activate creative and collaborative learning using PBS KIDS media and resources. Each session is divided into four areas: EAT, EXPLORE, MAKE and SHARE! Families will enjoy a delicious catered dinner, work together on a fun Ruff Ruffman themed project and share with one another.

- Session 2: Material World! Investigating Material Science-Jan 16
- Session 3: Stick or Slide! Exploring Force & Motion-Jan 23

Facilitators from WQED and Venture Outdoors will be available to instruct and support families as they work together. This is a grant-funded program sponsored by The Jefferson Regional Foundation.
