Soft lighting, quiet spaces, and sensory-friendly materials ensure that every participant can fully enjoy the experience.

Our program places a strong emphasis on hands-on learning, allowing participants to actively engage with the science of their senses. Through tactile experiences, auditory explorations, and visual demonstrations, participants will have the opportunity to understand concepts in a tangible and meaningful way. Each activity is thoughtfully designed to respect sensory sensitivities while fostering a sense of discovery and curiosity.
