Science in the Community
Our communities offer many opportunities and resources to help children learn science, including
* Science at Work;
* Community Science Groups and Organizations; and
* Other Community Resources.
To find out more about resources in your community: Check your local newspaper, a local guidebook or your telephone directory Or, go online and search the Internet. (The Resources section has more information about science-related Web sites for children.) Other good sources of information and ideas might be your child's teacher, the school librarian or the children's librarian at your local public library Before you pay a visit to a museum, planetarium, or the like, be sure to check the hours it's open and what cost—if any—is involved. Note that some places may charge entrance fees at certain times and grant free admission at other times.
