Is Science Inappropriate for Kids?

We hear this tired refrain from atheists over and over again: creationists hate science, creationists ignore science, or even that creationists hide science from their kids! But nothing could be further from the truth. We love science! We employ several PhD scientists. We love observing what God has created. The difference is that we interpret what we see through the lens of Scripture while others interpret that exact same evidence through the lens of millions of years and naturalistic evolution.

Our supporters love science too! This year we are offering Explore Day workshops for grades 4–12 at the Creation Museum here in Northern Kentucky. These are all-day workshops devoted to one particular branch of science, such as forensics, botany, astronomy, and genetics. Each workshop is filled with hands-on activities as well as teaching on science and the biblical worldview. And people love them! This month and March are already full, and both the April and May Explore Days are already nearly filled. If you would like to claim one of the remaining spots for your child, visit the Creation Museum website to register.

It’s a week packed with science, fun, and learning. You’ll want to register today to ensure a spot for your science-loving young person.
