    Join the Litchfield Historical Society in the Tapping Reeve Meadow for Sensory Science Saturdays. This three-week series of classes will preset hands-on activities for students to investigate the fields of physical and biological sciences in an outdoor and socially distant environment.  


    The series will begin by exploring the sense of “sight” through study of light and color. The second Saturday will present activities in the field of “movement” and including, momentum and balance. The third week will explore the sense of “touch” through heat-based experiments.  


    Classes will be presented by recently retired science teacher, Jay Fields. Fields has studied science on every continent, even Antarctica, where he spent 9 years working for the National Science Foundation. Having taught classes in grades K - 12, he has a passion for providing hands-on, experiential programs to students of all ages.
