AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS

Program Description

Wonder Workshop

How do we encourage a sense of wonder in our children?  Here at the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum, we have discovered that kids want freedom to make their own choices in play and creativity. Each week, our amazing teachers will present a new material, tool, skill or project that will engage children at their own pace in creative learning and problem-solving. Projects will vary based on student interest and sense of wonder. Kids will also have plenty of free-time to explore and play in our interactive playspace. Program content and activities will be tailored appropriately by age group:

Grades K-2: Wednesdays at Jackson Hole Children’s Museum - This program is currently full.  Please email gina@jhchildrensmuseum.org to be placed on the waitlist.

Grades 2-5: Thursdays at Jackson Hole Children’s Museum - REGISTER

This Spring, we are also collaborating with Teton Literacy Center (TLC) to offer 2 additional free afterschool programs at JHCM: Space Wars (Mondays, Grades 2-4 / Tuesdays, K-1). TLC is accepting applications from February 10th-20th. More details below on TLC-JHCM programs, including how to apply.

Experience the might of the universe and all its wonder. Use the tools of space to uncover your curiosities. They might be lightyears away. And, did we mention Star Wars? In this club, “the force” will be felt as we create space ships, rovers and Saturn slime.
