Young learners and their families will enjoy engaging, interactive experiences while exploring the concepts of centrifugal force, friction, momentum, kinetic energy and more.
 
“We are so pleased that families with young children are taking advantage of the fun and exciting learning activities we offer through the Safari Saturday program,” said Jane Baker, TTU professor in early childhood education and Safari coordinator. “The family-centered environment makes those ‘a-ha’ moments of discovery extremely special.”
 
Admission to Safari Saturdays is free but requires reservations. The Safari experience is a flexible event, allowing visitors to come and go as schedules allow. Older siblings are welcome. A parent or guardian must remain with children at all times.
