Program Description

Winter Wonders

Here in Jackson it can sometimes feel like winter lasts forever, so let’s take advantage of our frozen Wyoming wonderland and explore all things winter. Join our afterschool Winter Wonders program to discover the magic of winter through art, science, and engineering. We’ll examine snowflakes under microscopes, erupt snow volcanoes, create frozen art, and much more! To top it all off, afterschool kids will enjoy free play in the JHCM exhibit space all to themselves! Program content and activities will be tailored appropriately by age group:
