Science Kids | Simple Machines

Kids fixing bikes.

Join us as we get our hands dirty in nature to figure out what makes the world tick and how things work! Ever wonder why ropes and pulleys seem to make you stronger? How does a bike work? How do you make a solar oven? In Science Kids we’ll answer these questions and many more! Field trips, guest appearances and plenty of exploration will add zest to this exciting week of science!

What To Bring:

Pack a backpack with snack, lunch, reusable water bottle, rain jacket, warm layer, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses. Please remember to label everything. Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy, closed-toed shoes - no open-toe sandals!

How To Get There:

Please walk, bike, bus, or carpool to ACES at Hallam Lake whenever possible! Parking is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet.

BIKE BOARD CHALLENGE: In the summer, every time you come to Hallam Lake in something other than your own car you will earn a sticker to place on our Bike Board. Bike Board participants are entered to win great prizes all summer long including local gift certificates, bike accessories, ACES classes, reusable bags, and more. 

PARKING LOT: Limited parking is available for Hallam Lake visitors only. Please park efficiently. Drop-off overflow parking for Hallam Lake programs is available in the West End (2 hour free parking) with an easy walk down the stairs to the center. We are an IDLE FREE community.
