STEAM with Wildlife: Animal Treat Dispensers
Learn about the treats that Blandford’s animals enjoy and the senses that they use to find them. We will then use recycled materials to build different contraptions that the birds, mammals, and herps will test out at the end of the program. Blandford will provide the treats and recycled materials to pick from and you can bring recycled items from home to use or share, but please make sure they are clean.
An adult chaperone is required to register and attend this program. This program is recommended for families with children ages 6+.
