Preschool Saturday Science: Intro to Coding with KIBO. Without realizing it, we're balancing all the time. We bend over to pick up something we dropped, walk along curbs, run up and down hills or steps, and carry heavy bags on one shoulder - all without falling over. The Leap into Science balance workshop invites children and families to learn more about the science of balance by exploring and manipulating the placement of weight in toys, structures, and in their own bodies. Caregivers are required to participate in the class at no additional fee. Price is per child and does not include general admission. $15 Members / $20 Non-Members, plus general admission. 10:15-11:15. Arizona Science Center, 600 E. Washington St., Phoenix. 602-716-2000.
